Committee recommends 
restructuring of Food Sci 


The Faculty of Food Sciences, 
which came close to being dissolved 
in 1 97 1 will survive and is in the 
process of being restructured. 

Last Wednesday, the Academic 
Affairs Committee of the Governing 
Council passed a recommendation 
by Vice-president Don Forsler that 
an implementation committee be set 
up to advise on how to reform the 
faculty, based on a report which was 
made last June. The recommenda- 

tion will be forwarded to the Ex- 
ecutive Committee. 

In January 1971, Vice Provost 
(Health Sciences) John D. 
Hdmilton proposed that the faculty 
be phased out. He claimed that there 
was an insufficient demand for 
graduates, a high cost to the un- 
iversity to maintain the faculty and 
that it was superfluous in view of the 
availability of similar courses 
elsewhere in the province. 

Academic Affairs Committee to impose 
penalty on non-registering graduates 

The Academic Affairs Committee of the Governing Council voted last 
Wednesday to recommend that graduate students who fail to re-register pay 

a penalty. „ . . .. 

The recommendation goes to the Executive Committee before arriving 
at the full council for a final decision. 

Until now, a graduate student studying away from Toronto was not 
penalized for failing to re-regisler each year. If his department and the 
Council of the School of Graduate Studies recommended him, a simple 
payment of the total re-registration fees which he owed would render him 
eligible for his degree once his thesis was completed. 

Assistant Dean Sherk claimed at the meeting that the university was 
losing roughly $3000 per year in government grants for each student who 
was not registered. Accordingly, the committee adopted an SGS council 
recommendation that there be a re-registration fee for each year in which a 
grad fails to re-register. 

The harshness of the penalty was lessened, however, with the 
acceptance of three other proposals. Brian Morgan's motion that there be 
guidelines for leaves or absence established was passed, as was his suggestion 
that ihere be differentials in the peantly fee for students with varying 
personal circumstances. 

The committee also decided that students should be informed of the 
means of appealing the penalty fee.

Immediately, students, faculty 
and alumni protested Hamilton's 
recommendation to the Senate. The 
Senate established a committee to 
look 'into his charges, which 
reported in June. 

The committee found that, 
contrary to Hamilton's opinion, 
there is a demand for dieticians, 
nutritionists, food chemists and high 
quality secondary school teachers of 
home economics. 

It also found the university could 
combat the high cost by increasing 
the freshman enrolment from 60 to 
75 "with very little additional cost." 
in addition to increased tuition fee 
revenue, the faculty would thus 
qualify for more provincial grants. 
Hence the report concluded that 
"the overall financial effect on the 
faculty would be favourable." 

A third major recommendation 
was that Food Sciences should up- 
grade its academic standards by 
"encouraging the development of a 
strong Graduate Department of 
Food Chemistry and Nutrition with 
the aim of creating a centre of

Library stacks decision 
1 could depend on views 
of top administrator 

VOL. 93 No. 1 
MON. SEPT. 11, 1972 


Don Forster has a habit of recommending committees that report to him. 


The power to determine who will 
use the new $45 million John P. 
Robarts Research Library may fall 
almost entirely into the hands of 
Don Forester the university's vice- 
president and provost, if a 
recommendation by Forester is 

The recommendation, made to 
members of the Academic Affairs 
Committee of the Governing 
Council September 6, calls for either 
an advisory committee to report to 
him, a subcommittee, or 
both. Forester indicated, however, 
a slight preferance for the former. A 
subcommittee would report to 
Academic Affairs, not him. 

The committee would grant stack 
passed to undergraduate applicants 
who proveded their 99 academic neec 
to the committee's satisfaction. 
Undergraduates not granted 

passes by the committee will lose 
direct access to the 900,000 books 
now in the Sigmund Samuel Library 
stacks when the collection is moved 
to the new library in May. 

All students, except freshmen 
now this collegion — the larges. The 
communitee, proposed by Foster, 
would replace the nowdefunct 
'Library Council which last year 
created a controvery on campus 
when it turned down a request, 
backed by petition signed by 7,000 
students, for undergraduate access 
to the library stacks. 

The advisory committee would 
include only four student represen- 
tatives on a 12-person body 
similar to the 35-member Library 
Council which contained only 12 
student seats. 

Other members of the committee 
would be faculty administrators 

and librarians. 

The proposal for an advisory 
committee to report to Foster 
brought some unfavorable responses 
from members of the Academic 
Affairs Committee who feared it 
might give Forster, who is con- 
sidered to be one of the most power- 
ful men in the U of T administra- 
tion, too much control over the 
controversial issue of library access. 

Access to the stacks in the 
Robarts Libary will be restricted to 
graduate students and staff, and to 
undergraduates, who are able to li- 
ne up stack passes. 

A collection of approximately 
250.000 books — the amalgamation 
of library collections from various 
colleges and faculties on campus will 
replace the Sig Samuel books as an 
undergraduate collection. 

Organizers of fees strike optimistic 

By one observers' estimate, about 80 per cent of these students paying their fees at the Drill 
Hall paid in two installments. For a background story on the campaign against the fees hike 
I across Ontario, see page 21. 

Committee ups daycare cost 20% 

After approving a proposal that 
would hike parent fees at the cam- 
pus daycare centre by over 200 per 

cent, the Governing Council's ex- 
ternal affairs committee meets 
today in Simcoe Hall's Council 

Full-time, part-time library 
staff hit by budget cuts 

In an attempt to meet budget cutbacks, the U of T library system will 
probably hire fewer students this year for part-time work, U of T associate 
librarian David Esplin said last night. 

The system comprises most libraries on campus, excluding those at the 
federated colleges. 

Esplin added that this year's cut in the library budget, the third in three 
years, forced the library lo lay otT some full-time workers last May at the 
beginning of the 1972-73 fiscal year. He said he could not estimate off-hand 
now many workers had been affected except that he believed there were less 
than 20. Neither would he divulge what the amount of the budget cut was. 

He says no further lay-offs were expected but positions which become 
vacant over ihe year may not necessarily be filled. 

There will be no cut in library hours for the rest of this academic year, 
however, Esplin said, contrary to reports last year that this might be one of 
the services cut in the case of a budget squeeze. 

In addition lo staff cuts, supplies and equipment for library 
administration have been hit by the budget tightening, Esplin said. 

He pointed out also that although the allotment for buying books has 
not been cut, the purchasing power of this amount has greatly decreased 
w "h spiralling book costs. 

Chambers to decide the issue of 
parent control. 

On Thursday the committee 
approved funding proposals that 
would levy a fee of $85 a month per 
child at the daycare centre. 

Fees charged by the present 
parenl-conlrolled centre is a 
minimum $40 a month, depending 
on parental income. 

But committee members say that 
parents will be able to apply for 
provincial assistance if they cannot 
meet daycare fees. 

Parents in the campus community 
daycare centre have demanded that 
parents be given full control of 
daycare facilkes for their children. 

But the university has been 
reluctant to grant parent control, 
and in a proposal drafted by Vice- 
provost Robin Ross ha suggested 
that control be given to a university 

Under the Ross proposals though, 
an advisory committee on programs 
would be set up, consisting of three 
people from the internal affairs 

Organizers of a proposed second term fees strike at U of T are cautiously 
optimistic about student response to their campaign. 

SAC vice president John Helliwell, a key U of T organizer, said last 
night thai about 90 per cent of the students he asked at the Drill Hall last 
week were .paying their fees in two installments. The proposed strike is to 
protest luiton fee increases. 

However the overall figures may be lower since many students paid by 
mail before they were fully informed of the campaign. 

SAC Communications Commissioner Debra Lewis reported that it 
seemed at Victoria College about 80 per cent of the student were paying by 
installment. (Students at federated colleges paid there rather than the Drill 
Hall.) Some of those who paid all at once were forced to do so in order to 
recieve money from scholarships. 

Clerks at the Drill Hall could not estimate what proportion of students 
were not paying all their fees at once. One accountant commented that the 
proportion seemed higher than last year. 

Paying by two installments was prime focus of the campaign last week, 
since a proposal for a total fees boycott was dropped in the summer. SAC 
was instrumental in having this dropped, as it knew students could not 
register without paying fees. 

The campaign is primarily one of publicity directed against the Ontario 
government, which last spring announced tuition increases in all university 
courses. These amounted to about $100 for undergraduates and about $400 
for graduate students studing all year. 

At the same time, the Conservatives increased the loan portion in all 
OSAP award to $800 from $600. 

As its part of the province-wide Ontario Federation of Students' 
campaign against ihe fee and loan hikes, SAC sent out 22,000 letters to 
nearly all undergraduate students at U of T urging them to pay only their 
first installment. These arrived after the university's fees form, however, and 
many students may have paid by the time SAC's letter arrived. 

In 1000 of the letters, SAC put postage paid return cards asking the 
recipients to indicate how they were paying their fees. 

Out of about 290 replies, 209 students said they would pay in two 
installments, according to Helliwell. And, of the 72 who said they were 
■paying in one swoop, about 25 said the SAC letter had arrived too late to 
allow them to pay in two. 

U of T officials have refused to provide more accurate results until 
late September. 

However, the administration has cooperated in other respects. It has 
already agreed to reduce the penalty for paying by two installments lo $10 
from $12, and will reduce it a dollar more if it can afford lo do so. This 
would require about a 70 per cent participation rate by students. 

As well, Vice Provost Robin Ross told a SAC meeting on July 15 that 
the simutlaneous.increases in fees and the reduction in the bursary part of 
student awards was "totally unjustifiable". 

SAC's campaign will continue with teath-ins and publicity on student 
financing and the increases. In October, there will be a referendum on 
whether students should hold up payment of the second installments. 

Although the referendum question may demand a rollback of the 
increases, Helliwell admits the real point of the referendum is to' 
demonstrate that students object strongly to the Conservatives' action. 

Thus the government will be deterred from raising fees again soon. 

There will be a teach-in on the OSAP program this Thursday at 7 p.m. 
in Alumni Hall, Victoria College.

rm — 

SENT tfE. 

The Students' Administrative Council has 
called it "The Year of the Change". And, student 
governor Paul Cadario, writing in the Change 
Handbook, has described the Governing Council, 
the universtfy's new top governing body, as "The 
Biggest Change of All? 

- Either they know something we don't or their 
idea of change is pretty myopic. The council, 
lauded as a cepresentative body which would give 
students, teaching staff, administrative and support 
staff, and community representatives a meaningful 
voice in running this university, has done little to 
encourage optimism about its responsiveness to its 

Indeed, the council wasted quite some time 
debating whether its committee meetings whould 
be open, something readers of the U of T Act can 
be forgiven (Council meetings themselves are 
required by law to be open unless they are in 
committee of the whole.) 

Wednesday's Varsity will detail the content of 
this controversial debate..ln short, significat minori- 
ty of governors, notable among them the carry- 
overs from the closed-meeting Board of Gover- 
nors, were concerned lest their constituents be 
able to make their views known at a sufficiently 
early stage in council deliberations to affect the 
eventual outcome. 

"My real concern is that the committee 
discussions of any particular issue will be dis- 
cussed in the press and elsewhere" before com- 
mittees even make decisions, Board of Governors 
veteran John Tory told one meeting. 

Other governors lamented the possibility that 
publicity given to committee meetings might allow 
concerned individuals within the university to 
pressure their representatives to advocate certain 
views. It's all fine and well, they seem to be saying 
for our constituents to stamp us with- their sign of 
approval once every year or so in elections but 
that's where their role should stop. 

We disagree. Strongly. The Governing 
Council— in theory at least— was set up to repre- 

sent the community, not the personal views of 
those few persons who managed to get themselves 
elected or appointed to the council. 

And, let's not forget that 24 of them were not 
even directly elected by their respective con- 
stituencies. (Another two are handpicked to repre- 
sent the president.) 

Eight of them supposedly represent the 
university's alumni. In fact; they were elected by an 
electoral college composed of representatives of 
the constituent electoral alumni associations. Most 
alumni were never consulted about the choice. The 
other 16, intended to represent the public interest, 
were appointed by the provincial government. 

It would be sheer folly to suggest that these 
24— and indeed most of their 26 colleagues— could 
ever hope to ascertain, divinely or otherwise, their 
constituents' perspective on the many issues which 
will confront the council. 

Having lost the fight to deny committee access 
to the public, the conservatives sitting on the 
council's Executive Committee are apparently 
planning to at least make the acquisition of 
information on council and committee meetings 
and documents as inconvenient as possible by 
stalling Varsity requests to be included on the 
council's mailing list. (Nine university groups, in- 
cluding the three campus reference libraries and 
organizations representing the estates afforded 
seats on the council, were addecLto.the list last 
month. But, a Varsity request was apparently never 
even discussed by the Executive Committee.) 

One reason for this, we suggest, is that The 
Varsity, as a left-wing paper, has a reputation for 
being consistently critical of the undemocratic 
nature of university governing bodies, and of many 
aspects of the university policies which they set, 
both internally and in'relation to the social role that 
the university plays. And often, as the significant 
allotment of corporate executives on the Governing 
Council, are aware, The Varsity carries facts and 
editorial comment that question corporate 
hegemony in the university and society — 

something rarely to be found in the commercial 
media with which these men are accustomed to 
dealing. Their response to criticism, it seems, is to 
suppress facts that could be subject to scrutiny. 

Council apologists have suggested that finalcial 
consideration limit the size of the mailing list. 

The Varsity as the one media serving the whole 
university certainly merits being added to the 
council's mailing list, even if it's going to cost a few 
cents more a mailing to keep the university 
community informed about council developments. 

While the issue of openness is probably a minor 
one when seen in relation to other matters that the 
Governing Council will have to deal, the way in 
which it has been treated is perhaps indicative. 

The reaction of at least the council 
conservatives has been — predictably — to con- 
tinue long-ingrained habits of secrecy and elitism. 
It is- a pattern that can be expected to continue in all 
spheres of decision-making, given the un- 
representative nature of the members of tht body 
and the underlying assumptions that they seem to 
work with. Power in the university has not been 
significantly transferred. Rather, the old 
heirarchical structures have been given a more 
modern, stream-lined form. 

In one sense, the Executive Committee's 
response to The Varsity application, now slated for 
Wednesday, can be seen as a test of how it 
responds to pressure from the constituencies it 
supposedly represents. 

In a deeper sense, however, it can be seen as 
an indication of how far from +he ideal of 
participation — let alone control — by the university 
community and the general public the realty is, and 
how difficult the battle to realize these ideals in the 
university and in society will be.

Parents fight Simcoe Hall 

Day-care issue remains unresolved 

As the new term commences, one of the> 
major problems facing the university com- 
munity remains the issue of day care. 

It exploded at U ofT in the spring of 1 970 
when day care supporters occupied Simcoe 
Hall to force the administration to provide 
the money needed for rennovations at the 12 
Sussex under-two centre. The building at 12 
Sussex itself was illegally occupied by a group 
of women's liberationists after prolonged 
negotiations for a building with the ad- 
ministration failed to produce any results. 

The sit-in at that time finally produced 
what months of going through "the proper 
channels" had failed to get: minimal finalcial 
backing from the university. 

At the same time, however, the 
administration, under then President Claude 
Bissell, took pains to emphasize that it con- 
sidered its backing a response to a specific 
situation, not a general policy implying con- 
tinuing commitment for the provision of day 
care at U of T. A Iso in order to relieve student 
pressure, the Presidential Advisory Com- 
mittee on Social Responsibility was sent up to 
recommend on the university's responsbilities 
to its own and the surrounding community. 

The committee, although seen as an 
attempt at co-option by many of those in- 
volved in the sit-in, produced recommen- 
dations that the administration found un- 
acceptable. It recommended that the un- 
iversity carry out a comprehensive survey of 
campus daycare needs and accept a major 
share of responsibility in meeting those needs. 
Finally, last winter, all the members of the 
committee resigned en masse, declarating the 
committee ineffective because of inadequate 
funding and other obstacles. 

Meanwhile, another issue had come to the 
forefront. The successfull Campus Co- 
operative Day Care Centre (the Sussex Cen- 
tre) had produced twenty 'graduates' — 
children over two years of age whose needs 
could not be met by the under-two centre. 
(Provincial law requires the two age groups to 
be separated.) Parents from the Sussex Centre 
now sought another building within the un- 
iversity which could house a centre for these 
children, and for other children aged two to 

The university's response to their requests, 
however, was bureaucratic inertia, while all 
the while professing sympathy. There were no 
buildings available, it said. The matter would 
have to be 'studied'. 

Finally, in April, after months of red tape 
and runaround, and after an intensive publici- 
ty campaign of lobbying, leafieting, news- 
paper articles, and demonstrations, parents 
and supporters took matters into their own 
hands. They occupied an empty clubhouse 
behind the Meteorology Building at 315 Bloor 
St. W., a building the administration later 
admitted was "eminently suited" to day care. 
According to the university, it was slated for 
unspecified other uses, although it has stood 
empty for a year. 

The new location was rapidly turned into a 
well-functioning, albeit illegal, over-two cen- 
tre. The university officially took no action 
other than to warn the occupers that they were 
tresspassing. Since April, however, parents, 
volunteers, and sympathizers have maintanied 
a 24-hour occupation of the building, fearing 
that they would be locked out by university 
police if they left it. 

For his part, U of T Registrar and Vice- 
President Robin Ross, who negotiated on 

For several years parents in the university community have fought an up-hill battle against the U of T administration to obtain 
adequate day-care facilities for their children. 

behalf of the administration, told the oc- 
cupiers that he would not discuss the future of 
the over-two centre until the clubhouse was 
vacated. He also stated that he did not 
recognize their negotiating committee as a 
legitimate body. 

At the same time, however, the 
administration continued discussions with 
SAC, and a Day Care Board created in the 
spring by the administration, met to consider 
the problems. In mid-May, the university 
produced a document which admitted that 
there was "a clear and undeniable need for 
increased day facilities," while professing 
uncertainty as to the university's responsibili- 
ty and ability to meet this demand. 

By a remarkable coincidence — Ross 
denied the occupation had anything to do with 
it — the document suggested the use of the 
"available" clubhouse at 315 Bloor as the best 
site for a centre. It made no reference to the 
fact that a day care centre was already 
occupying the premises, nor did it explain 
why the building, which earlier, according to 
the administration's claims, had been slated 
for other uses, was now suddenly available. 

It proposed that any centre to be esta- 
blished there should be operated must be 
licensed, and that it be managed by a board of 
directors composed of representatives from 
SAC. GSU, APUS, the U of T Faculty 

Chifdren play outside the second centre. They have occupied the building since last 

Association, the U of T Staff Association, the 
university administration, and the Social 
Planning . Council of- Toronto. It further 
proposed that students have first priority 
in using the centre, staff (both faculty and 
support) have second priority, and that 
remaining space, if any, go to community 

The university would meet the cost of 
renovations "not directly the result of adap- 
ting the building as a day care centre" and 
would make it available rent free for the first 
three years. Users would have to pay for 
changes required by the province, and for 
operating costs. 

Finally, it suggested that 'graduates' from 
the Sussex Centre and children from the St. 
Andrews Centre which was scheduled to close 
within two or three months because its 
building was being taken over, share the 
clubhouse facility. 

Although the administration attempted to 
present the proposal as a major concession to 
day care, it came under immediate attack. 
Members of the occupying group pointed out 
that at present 63 children were being served 
by the two centres, while the university's 
proposed centre would lower this number to 
30 — less than half. This at a time when, for 
example, a random survey of university 
workers taken in March by Cheryll Seaman 
indicated that twenty-six families with thirty- 
two children would place their children in a 
estimated S100 per month under the. uni- 
versity's plan. 

married students' residence alone there are 
550 children in need of daycare. 

As well, the financial burdens imposed by 
the need to pay for renovations would have 
been too heavy for many low-income families 
on campus or in the surrounding community. 
Costs for the centre, presently $40 per month 
minimum per child, would have risen to an 
estimanted $100 per month under the un- 
versily's plan. 

The university's proposal would also have 
removed the feature of parent control of the 
centre, replacing it, as the Campus Co- 
operative Day Care Centre put it, with "an 
official alphabet soup day care board" with 
no experience. 

Finally, the requirement that any centre in 
the building be licensed was seen as an attack 
on the philosophy of the Campus 
Co-operative group, which has been unable 

over three years to yet win a license for its 
centre. The reason for this lies in the 
government's requirement that any centre 
have trained staff, with credentials which can 
only be obtained in training courses based on 
a completely different philosophy of child 
care than taht favoured by the Campus Co- 
operative group. 

Day car supporters also pointed out that 
the adoption of this proposal by the new 
Governing Council, coming into office July 1, 
would in all likelihood mean that the un- 
iversity would then accept no further respon- 
sibility for day care. They claim that the 
university's role as an employer and residence 
for thousands, and as a landlord and builder 
makes it responsible for the social welfare of 
all those within its boundaries. As an 
educational institution committed to the 
education of all society, the university must 
play a special role vis a vis women, given the 
care than that favoured by the Campus Co- 
already unequal role which they face, co-op 

In the face of opposition from the St. 
Andrew and Campus Co-operative group, and 
from the GSU and SAC, the administration 
proposal was held in abeyance, and the entire 
matter went to the Internal Affiars Com- 
mittee of the new Governing Council. 

The committee brought down policy 
recommendations which provide that the un- 
iversity provide capital subsidies but not 
operating costs for day care facilities for the 
university community, that the centres be 
licensed, and that admission to them for 
university parents be on the basis of need. 

Although the new proposals mention the 
principles of access on the basis of need and 
"parental involvement", opponents point out 
that the proposed form of day care would 
have significantly less parental and" volun- 
teer involvement, and considerably higher 
operating costs. 

Although the Internal Affairs Committee 
had unanimously recommeded the policy to 
the Governing Council, there was con- 
siderable debate at the council meeting of 
Aug. 31. Faculty conservatives, like Charles 
Hanly and William Coutts, and others who 
admitted they believed the university had no 
day care responsbilities, realized they had lost 
thai battle.

Dick & Jane 
learn about 

The Varsity 

Chapter 1 : The Workers 

Look, look. See The Varsity people. 
They do all kinds of interesting things. 

Some of them are reporters. They go places and find out what's 

They cover news, sports, and cultural things. Sometimes, they write 
longer stories called features. 

Anybody can be a Varsity reporter. All you have to do is go to The Varsity 
office and say you want to help. 

See the people with cameras. They are Varsity photographers. 

They go to the same dind of places as reporters and take pictures. Their 
pictures illustrate The Varsity stories. 

You can be a photographer, too. They work in the same place as the 
reporters. The SAC Media Building, 91 St. George Street )two buildings north 
of Harbord and St. George, opposite the new library), second floor. 

There are even more things to do at The Varsity than write or take 
pictures. Some peoples do drawings to go with features and editorials. 
Others help design the paper. 

There is something for everybody to do at The Varsity. 

Chapter 2: Editors All 

Look, look. See the other people who work at The Varsity. 

Most of the time, they don't leave the office when they are working. 
They are called desk people because they sit at desks. 

They help get the other people's work ready to go into the paper. All of 
them are editors. 

There is a city editor and a news editor to help the news reporters. 

The city editor asks the reporters to cover stories. Then, he edits their 
story with them, showing them how they can make their stories better and 
making sure they have everything in them that they need. 

The news editor gets thestory when thecity editor is done. He checks the 
spelling and grammar, and doubleckecks the facts. When that is done, he 
tells the layout editor where in the paper the story is going. 

Sports people have an editor, too. He does the same things the city and 
news editors do. 

People who write features and do reviews work with their section's 
editor and associate editor. Surpriese, surprise! They do the same things as 
the city and news editors do. 

See the man who wirks in the darkroom. He is the photography editor. 
He makes sure that people take pictures of the all the things of which the 
paper needs pictures. 

After the pictures are taken, a duty photographer develops them in The 
Varsity's very own darkroom. The Varsity supplies the film, chemicals, and 
equipment. The duty photographer and the deskpeople decide which 
pictures will go in the paper. 

When all these people are done with their work, the layout editor 
decides how to design the newspaper pages to get everything on them and 
make them look as nice as possible. She does this for most sections of the 
paper. Sometimes, she has helpers. 

Chapter 3: Top Dog 

Look, look. There is only one person left in the office. He is 
the editor. The editor is the person responsible for making sure 
the paper gets done three times a week. He is The Varsity's 
general co-ordinator and business manager. He takes care of 
letters-to-the-editor and editorial pages, and is in charge of 

The editor is not a student. He is a full-time employee of the 
paper. (This year, so is the city editor.) He has to apply for the 
job the spring before he begins work. Then, the people who 
work on the paper and the people who direct business affairs 
interview the people who want the editor's job. 

The workers suggest one of them for editor and the directors 
decide whether to accept their suggestion. If they don't, the 
workers have to make a second choice. This has never 

The editor is hired for one school year. He can only be fi- 
red if both a majority of the workers and the directors

Chapter 4: Big News 

Look, look. See the funny ma- 

It is a telex machine. It lets the 
people at The Varsity and other uni- 
versity and community college 
newspapers keep in instant touch. 

It is how The Varsity sets the CUP 
news trom across the country that it 
prints in every issue of the paper. 

Cup also provides The Varsity 
with news from outside Canada 
from Quebec and around the world. 
That news has the name CUP1, Cana- 
dian University Press International 
at the beginning of the story. 
CUP meansCanadian University Press 
It is the national cooperative of the 
student press in Canada. 

CUP does more than just send out 
news. It has an office in Ottawa whe- 
re people work on news , features, 
and helping member papers with all 
the problems they have. 

The people who work for CUP have lots of experience. They come from 
the member papers and are elected at the annual national conference. 

The conference takes place at different universities every year. People 
from al all the member papers come together to discuss their problems, the 
role of the press, and learn about all kinds of things, like how to put out 
better newspapers. 

CUP had has three different regions - the Maritimes, Ontario, and the 
West. Each region has a fieldworker who travels from paper to paper to help 
them with their work. Once a year, each region has a conference to get to 
know each other better and exchange ideas and information about 
producing a paper. 

CUP also has a national advertising co-operative owned by the 
participating members. The Varsity belongs to it. Its name is Youthstream. 

Youthstream gets The Varsity national advertising which ehlps pay for 
the paper. Without Youthstream, The Varsity couldn't reach all these 
potential advertisers and get their ads. Youthstream makes The Varsity an 
awful lot of money. 

Chapter 5: Far Away 

Look, look. See the man in the car. He is the copy runner. He takes the 
material for The Varsity to the printer. 

vVhen the copy runner brings the printer the copy, the printer gives it to 
someone to typeset. The Varsity is typeset on computer equipment. The 
typesetter sits at what looks like a big, big typewriter and types the copy, 
using all the proper codes to make it look the way The Varsity wants it to 

Instead of getting the type in hot metal chunks. The Varsity's copy is 
developed on photographic paper. Then, the stories are cut out and pasted 
down on paste-up sheets. There are red windows left for the pictures and 
they are done separately. 

When the paste-up is done, the printer shows the page to The Varsity's 
proofreader. The proofreader works at the printers. He checks to make sure 
everything is done the way it is supposed to be, indicating typographical and 
other errors. Then, the printer and the typesetter correct the errors and 
show it to the proofreader for approval. 

sometimes, somebody makes a mistake at The Varsity offices and a story is 
too long or too short. If it is too long, the proofreader has to cut something 
out so it will fit. 

When the page is done, it is taken to a camera room. Here, they take a 
picture of the entire page and make an aluminium plate from the negative 
That is why this method of printing is called photo offset. 

But everything isn't done yet. The Varsity delivery people have to pick 
up the paper and distribute it to the 75-plus delivery spots on the St. George 
Scarborough, and Erindale campuses. 

Chapter 6: Boreds 

Look, look. See the Students' Administrative Council people. They are 
the publishers of The Varsity. 

But, they are the government and the government isn't supposed to 
control the press. So, they don't really control The Varsity. 

They give the paper a lump sum grant every year, less than a third of its 
operating budget, and in return get to appoint people to the paper's Board 
of Directors. 

Most of the money for The Varsity comes from advertisers. The paper 
has its own advertising office and the people who work for it solicit and 
prepare the campus and local advertising. 

The Varsity Board of Directors is an independent body. It looks after the 
business management of the paper and receives formal complaints about its 
editorial or business management. 

People dissatisfied with the paper's response to their complaints should 
write the Bond's Campus Relations Committee at 91 St.George Street, 
Toronto 181. 

The committee investigates complaints and recommends appropriate 
measures to the Board. ... 

But, The Varsity Board of Directors and the Students' Administrative 
Council cannot interfere with the paper's editorial policy. 

The editor is responsible to the Board for the paper's journalistic 
integrity. Speak to the section editors and then the editor if you have a 
complaint about something the paper did or didn't do. 

Look, look. See all the people who work on the paper. They 
are the staff or editorial collective. 

They are the only people who control the paper's editorial 

Anybody can be a member of the collective. All they have 
to do is work on a minimum number of papers. 

In late summer, the staff decides what the broad policy 
guidelines for the paper should be. All later decisions have to 
be made within this -framework unless a weekly staff meeting 
decides otherwise. 

The weekly collective meetings determine major editorial 
and business matters. Meetings held the day before the paper is 
published, production days, approve the next day's editorials 
and rate stories as to their relative importance. 

This story is very short. That's not because it's unimportant. 

It's because the workers control the paper's editorial 
policy. That's called staff democracy. 

We like it. That's because we believe people should control 
decisions affecting their own lives.

8 The Varsity 

Move to Sussex Street 

New building approved for Innis 


With final university approval for a new 
building, Innis College ends eight years of 
being a boarder at U of T. 

Presently the college is in the former home 
of Sir John A. Macdonald, a three-storey 
white brick house on St. George St. owned by 
Knox College. . 

And Knox has let it be known that lnms 
College will not be welcome there after 
August 1 974. 

But since its inception in 1964, Innis 
College has strayed form some of the 
traditional ideas of what a college should be at 

To accomodate residential requirements, 
for instance, Innis rented a number of older 
houses along Huron St. and formed student 

And under the Innis aegis, interdisciplinary 
courses with no fixed format, and often no 
teachers made their first appearance at the 

Named in honour of the late Professor 
Harold Innis, a pioneer in the areas of 
economics, history and communications 
theory, innis College, along with New 
College, were established to releive the over- 
population of the existing colleges. 

Both were planned as residence colleges, 
with Innis to be housed in one of the New 
buildings. In 1964, the first New building was 
complete, with the second phase under con- 
struction for Innis. 

The then Principal, Robin Harris, along 
with the College Council recommended that 
New be given both buildings, and that Innis be 
allowed to establish a separate site. 

Meanwhile the doors to the college opened 
in September, 1964, as Innis occuped a tem- 
porary building, constructed in 1 948 as a 
bookstore, on Hart House Circle. Old un- 
iversity maps and the Music Faculty 
Freshman Handbook still show the spot as 
Innis College, Space was scarce as the college 
consisted of an enormous common room, 
some athletic lockers, and the offices of the 
Principal and the Registrar, surrounded by 
240 students. 

In 1 965 a Users Committee was 
established, to find a permanant home for 

Original architects' plans called for two 
towers of residences, with each group of 
twelve sharing a common room, and three 
sections, 36 residents composing one house. 
Non-residents would be assigned to a 
house, along with dons. Overnight bunk beds 
could be used by non-residents, with the 
lowers being joined by administrative wings, 
and the library, beneath which a Common 
Room, a middle quad, with grass, and student 
facilities were planned. 

The cost of the building was estimated 
between 16 and 18 million dollars. The 
University asked the users to pair down the 
cost to $ 1 0 million, but after getting rid of the 
Deans, the Dons, and making the residences 
Co- Educational the estimated cost was 1.6 
million dollars over the amount the Federal 
Government was willing to spend. 

Acting Principal Peter Russell, and the 
College Council held an open meeting at 
which it was decided that Innis would stop 
enrolling new students, if the university did 
not find the funds. The College was already 
overcrowed in its space, and many facilities 
were lacking. 

Within two days then-university President 
Claude Bissell found the money, and the 
college was given the go-ahead. 

But the election of Pierre Trudeau to 
Ottawa brought a cutback on proposed ex- 
penditures, one of these being the building of 
innis College. 

In 1968, the university provided additional 
space to Innis by giving the college the first 
and second, floors of 63 St. George, the 
Macdonald-Mowal historical site, on Knox 
College land. The college existed in two places 
at the same time for a year and a half, at 
which lime the college gol exclusive use of the 
building, and left the Hart House Circle. 

In 1970 Harris announced his retirement, 
with Peler Russell succeeding him in the fall 
of 1971. On his return from teaching in 
Uganda, Russell established a building com- 
mittee to discover if the 63 St. George site was 
adequale as a permanant home. The Building 
Committee, composed of students, faculty 
and administration, looked at other available 
locations on campus, and travelled to other 
campuses for new ideas. 


After eight years in an old St. George Street house, Innis College will move to a 'new building to be erected on this site. 

Innis College wishes to integrate its building with the surrounding community. Sussex residents are wary of such developments. 

Their decision on staying at 63 St. George 
was made simplier when Knox College said it 
wanted the building back by 1974. 

The College could have fought to keep the 
St. George site, but a majority of the Building 
Committee wanted the College to construct a 
new building, plus use the existing buildings 
on the Sussex-St. George ste. In January, 
1972, the College published "Towards a Per- 
manant Home For Innis College" which was 

a report on the work of the previous six 
months, outlining the Colleges suggestions on 
the new building. 

The qualities the college listed as the ones 
it hoped the building will foster, are a small 
modest building, with a variety of design, with 
an absence of long, gleaming corridors. The 
report states that the college should be open 
24 hours, as much as possible, and it should 
not be "fortress 1 like, providing some needed 

commercial or social services for our 

When the report was distributed the 
question of the existing houses was discussed. 
The College does not want to level the site, 
but hopes to integrate the surrounding com- 
munity, including the Day Care Centre, at 12 
Sussex, and the other houses managed by 
Crown Trust, and inhabited by students and 

$1.2 million Innis building to 
be erected on parking lot 

Eight years after its birth, Innis College 
has obtained approval to construct a SI. 2 
million building, on the north side of Sussex 
Ave. at St. George St. 

Although University officials have not yet 
approved concrete plans, the Innis building 
committee is presently screening 16 possible 
architects to design the new college . Meetings 
are open to all members of the campus and 

Five final names will be chosen and 
submitted to the university's Governing 

In one of their last acts as supreme 
authority in the university, the old Board of 
Governors approved in principle last June a 
report from the Innis College user's com- 
mittee, recommending the construction of a 

24,000 square foot building. 

And according to Art Hall, assistant to 
Innis principal Peter Russell, the whole 
building will be financed without one dollar of 
provincial funds. Hall said money would 
probably be obtained from sources like the 
Varsity Fund, the university's alumni rainy 
days cookie jar. 

Construction of the building will be 
counted as part of the university's available 
floor space with the Ontario government 
cutting down the amount of money available 
for constructing new buildings" 

The planned college will be built on the site 
of a present parking iot, created several years 
ago when houses were torn down to make way 
for the anticipated building. 

But no new residence space will be 

created by the building. In their report, the 
Users' committee recommends that the un- 
iversity seek outside funds from government 
housing agencies to construct any residence 


The proposed building will contain 24,000 
square feet of classrooms, administrative and 
student union offices. 

In approving the plan, the Board made no 
firm committment to keep existing houses in 
the Sussex block adjacent to the present 
parking lot. Instead they suggested that the 
architect should investigate integrating ex- 
isting structures on the block into the college. 

All property between St. George and 
Huron St. along Sussex is owned by the 
university and reserved for possible Innis

# Abortion uproar sweeps SMC 

Kelly assails birth control info 


Controversy at St. Michael's 
College erupted during orientation 
because birth control and abortion 
information was distributed to 

The discovery of the Abortion 
Counselling and Birth Control 
Collective phone number in the 
freshmens' "survival kits", given 
away on the first day of orientation, 
triggered off a handful of complaints 
from parents and college president 

Father John M. Kelly. 

On Kelly's insistence, the Roman 
Catholic college's student union, 
responsible for the kits, inserted in 
the remaining kits letters from both 
Kelly and from the union president 
Al Nigro. 

Nigro's letter included the phone 
number of Birthright, a pregnancy 
counselling service that advises 
women to have their babies, which is 
associated with the Catholic church. 
Birthright's number was not in- 
cluded in the kit. 

In his letter, Nigro justifies the 
inclusion of the abortion and birth 
control number by stating "we feel 
that providing all sides of a question 
is essential in order to make a 
rational judgment". He apologized 
for any offensive information con- 
tained in the kits. 

Kelly's letter expresses his 
administration's stand against abor- 
tion, and makes it clear that "the 
student union alone is responsible 
for the inclusion of the information 
on birth control and abortion". 

Paucity of votes cast in 
Arts and Science election 


The Faculty of Arts and Science committee 
elections, held last May, resulted in a less than seven 
per cent return of ballots by students, in great part due 
to the late timing of the elections. In contrast, most 
SAC-run elections elicit in at least a 20 per cent vote. 

According to the faculty office, of 1 1,250 ballots 
sent by mail to students, only 778 were returned. 

Victoria College students voted the least often for 
their own college representatives, with only 65 votes 
coming in from 2650 being mailed out. St. Mikes 
students voted most' 94 out of 2200 eligible voted. Only 
82 of 2150 at University voted. (Some students may 
have voted for committee, but not college 

Innis, New, Erindale and Trinity College's 
representatives were all acclaimed. Scarborough is 
independent in curricual and thus its seats are vacant. 

The elections were held at the end of the academic 
year, one of the busiest times in university. 
Nominations for committee seats closed on April 7. 
This was also the last day of term. Ballots were then 
sent out by mail and were to be returned by May 8. 

During this period students were heavily involved 
in writing essays; term tests and preparing for final 

exams which began April 17 and lasted to May 5. 

As well, The Varsity had ceased publishing by the 
time nominations closed. Therefore, although 
statements from the candidates were sent out with the 
ballots, the paper could not cover the election. 

Of the 34 positions open on the faculty council 
commiltes, 16 students won by acclamation and one 
seat on the Life Sciences Curriculum Committee 
remains unfilled. 

In some cases candidates were elected with as little 
as 51 or 53 votes. 

The faculty voting was substantially better than 
student voting. Of approximately 1300 arts and science 
faculty, ballots sent out 479 were returned. There were 
23 acclamations and 20 elections. It would seem that 
faculty interest was also affected by the late date of the 

The policy on the conduct of the Council elections 
is that voting takes place in the spring of the preceding 
academic year. 

Assistant Dean William Foulds claimed Saturday 
that the administration was expected to run the 
elections but it was occupied with the Library Council 

and Governing Council elections. 

Instead, the faculty ran its own elections. And, 
"It takes time to get things done" Foulds commented." 

Kelly wrote that "on the abortion 
issue, the administration thinks that 
it is an unjustifiable destruction of 
innocent human life". 

Kelly's move was sparked by, he 
later said, "fewer than a half dozen 
calls" he received on one day. 

"A lot of these students' parents 
have taken public stands against 
abortion", Kelly said. 

He admitted that he himself has 
not as yet seen the survival kit. "It's 
all second hand information I got". 

The information which caused 
the controvery was included in a 
listing of services' phone numbers in 
the Toronto region. The list. was a 
reprint from titled "A Survival Han- 
dbook", produced by Guerilla. 

The York University Student 
Clinic was the only other listing that 
mentioned abortion and birth con- 
trol counselling and referral. 

Kelly claims laht "only one 
aspect was presented, with complete 
disregard of the other side". 

Kelly objected to the fact that 
"the single Catholic college on cam- 
pus had not included any counselling 
service that Catholics conduct". 

He feels that what was presented 
was "a leaning of the student 
opinion" and "the approval of 
liberal unmarried sex". Kelly 
himself said he is not in favor of pre- 
marital sex. 

"I went through this (complaints 
from parents) last year with the 
inclusion of the Birth Control Han- 
dbook in the freshman students' 
kits." Kelly recalls. 

"This handbook was doubly bad 
last year and completely out of 
taste. It included illustrations and 
drawings that 1 thought were in 
outrageously poor taste." 

The Birth Control Handbook, 
published by McGill University 
students and distributed across 
Canada in the few last years, 
provided information about in- 

tercourse, birth controk, abortion, 
and venereal disease. 

Referring to the student union's 
autonomy, Kelly begrudgingly said' 
"I hate to admit it, but I have no 
control over the student union." He 
added that he finds their lack of 
consultation "discourteous". 

"If I tried to pull that on the 
students, they would be after me", 
he said. 

Former studnet union president 
John O'Grady describes Kelly as a 
"shrewd conservative, not a reac- 
tionary, who wants to retain the 
status quo". 

"His position of power is 
unassailable at St. Mike's, and has 
been for the past 15 years", 
O'Grady added. 

Last year he refused to accept 
student demands for an academic 
majority on the college's top gover- 
ning structure, the Collegim, which 
presently composed entirely of 
Roman Catholic Basilian Fathers. 

And again, last March, he 
strongly opposed giving into 
students pressures at the Simcoe 
Hall occupation over undergraduate 
and public access to the new John P. 
Robarts library. 

Kelly objects to student tactics in 
achieving their aims, although he 
did not comment on the aims 

"you don't do anything immoral 
to get something you want", he 
charges. "It's a very serious mistake 
in moral judgment for achieving 
your aims". Kelly feels that the 
college's administration and its stu- 
dent union are working at "cross- 

As classes get underway, calm 
seems to have returned to 
St. Michael's College. 

"The inclusion of his (Kelly's) 
letter in the survival kit satisfied him 
and, along with our letter, satisfied 
us also", said student union vice- 
president Tim Hamer. 

Evans forms committee to study New Program 


The New Program in arts and 
science instituted in 1969 is 
scheduled to come under intensive 
review this year. 

U of T President John Evans 
announced in July he was forming a 
Presidential Advisory Committee 
on the New Program will make its 
first report on February 1, 1973. 

The first meeting of the 
Committee, will start to scrutinize 
financial and academic aspects of 
the New Programme. It is scheduled 
for Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the 
Council room of the Pharmacy 

The review committee is a parity 
body consisting of fourteen 
members recommeded by: the 
Students Administrative Council, 
the Association of part time 
Undergraduate Students, the 
Graduate Student Union, Provost 
Don Forster and the Dean Greene. 

Seven are faculty members 
including the chairman, Daniel 
Berlyne (Psycology), Frank Watt 
(UC English), Paul Fox (Political 
Economy), P. P.M. Meincke (Erin 
Physics) and Robert Jervis 
(Chemical Engineering). Three are 
full lime undergraduates Linda Hajl 
(Vic. HI), Ron Struys (Innis III) 
and Robert Anderson (UCIV). The 
extension student is Kurt Loeb, the 
graduate student' from extension is 
Rita Mifflin (OISE), and the 
graduate student is Pamela Chellew, 
a teacher. One other recent graduate 
will be added to complete the 

Much controversy has arisen over 

the expense and academic results of 
the New Programme. Bob Greene, 
dean of arts and science, said that 
many of the older conservative 
faculty members feel a more highly 
structured program is preferrable, 
resulting in a closer fellowship 
between Professors and students, 
and students and their colleges. 
They also feel that the range of 
subjects is too wide and the students 
tend to feel lost because of in- 
adequate counselling. Dean Greene 
considers the formation and 
decisions of the committee will be 
the most important events in the 
Arts and Science Faculty this year. 

The New Program was an 
extensive liberalization of the arts 
and science course structure. 

Implemented after a report 
headed by Political Economy 
professor C.B. MacPherson 
recommended sweeping changes, the 
eventual result was considerable 
liberalization. The distinction 
between four-year honours and 
three-year general courses was 
abolished and students were allowed 
to choose practically any com- 
bination of courses to lead to a 

Rigiaity in a number of programs 
was lessened in several departments 
and a trend away from emphasis on 
exarns began. Another result was the 
flowering of many new courses, 
including some that involved more 
than one department. 

While the reaction from students 
has generally been favourable to the 
changes, others have been upset by 
the proliferation of "easy courses" 

and genrally higher marks. The in- 
creased emphasis on essays has also 
contributed to higher incidences of 
lending and selling term papers. 

The review committee will 
examine the general regulations of 
the New Programme and the re- 
quirements for standing as outlined 
in the Calandeer. Evans urged com- 

mittee members to recommend, "in 
the light of both student enrolment 
patterns and the experience and 
views of faculty and students, such 
changes as may seem appropriate". 

Topics to be discussed include, the 
statistics of enrolment patterns in 
the New Programme as compared 
with previous ones, student and staff 

attitues towards the New 
Programme, the role of colleges, the 
effects of separately-financed 
divisons teaching part of the un- 
dergraduate curriculum, the role of 
fourth year, modes of instruction, 
and the aims of undergraduate 
education in the Faculty of Arts and 

Summer ins and outs of SAC 
safe deal not ratified 

Besides working on developing a U of T response on 
the fees hike, SAC kept busy over the summer on other 
matters, Some of the more notworthy goings-on were: 

SAC — owned Hogtown Press refused to sell 175 
copies of Origin of the Family to the University 
Bookstore because the Bookstore was going to sell the 
publication at a profit. In making the decision the 
Education Commission said there would be nor resale 
for profit on U of T campus. :Hogtown Press has been 
owned by SAC since last spring. It reprints educational 

SAC had three general meetings over the summer, 
the most in recent memory during a summer. 

SAC Services Commission decided to undertake a 
systematic study of food price and quality at the various 
campus cafeteriae. The study will be conducted by 
Food Science students, 

SAC received approximately $1,000 from Warner 
Brothers for aiding in the filming Class of '44", the 
sequel to "Summer of '42". SAC was given $400 for 
rental of its building, and $600 for cap and gown rental. 
In addition, SAC received a free interior paint job, and 
was due to get a 1 944-style phone booth to use as a free 
phone. . , 

It was discovered that the 10-year contract with 

"the funny little obnoxious man" who handles the 
prophylactic machine in the SAC office was never 
ratified and that details of the commitment would be 
searched out since the product leaves something to be 
desired in the opinion of some. 

A decision was made through SAC initiative to set 
up a committee to review the New Program in Arts and 

At the third SAC executive meeting on May 17 
vice-president John Helliwell and Communications 
Commissioner Debra Lewis moved that Ulli Diemer 
and Ernie Hobbs be named Handbook Editors. At the 
Fourth executive meeting, SAC president Eric Mighn 
and vice-president John Helliwell moved that the 
motion regiarding editorship of the SAC Handbook be 
reconsidered. The motion to designate Hobbs and 
Diemer as handbooks editors was defeated. It was 
moved that SAC undertake the co-ordination of the 
handbook under the direction of John Helliwell, and 
that he be directly responsible to the SAC for the 
production of the handbook. SAC justified the motion 
on the grounds that the SAC Handbook provides the 
initial contact between the SAC and the students and 
represented a vital and important means of com- 
munication on the part of SAC.

Teaching excellence to be stressed 

Scar princi 

pal calls for closer ties with UofT 

Ralph Campbell was named to succeed A.F.W. Plumptre as new 
Scar chief last May. 


The new principal of Scarborough College hopes to 
preserve close ties with the St. George campus during his term 
of office. 

Ralph Campbell said that until the college is sufficiently 
mature to depart from the orbit of the U of T, "it should be 
closely integrated with the university." 

A symbiotic relationship between Scarborough and the 
main campus exists, he said in an interview Friday. For 
example, the university gains from the research undertaken by 
Scarborough College faculty, and the college benefits from 
being a component of a long-established university. 

Campbell succeeded A. F. Wynne Plumptre as the new 
principal of the college last July. 

Plumptre, principal for seven years, retired from the 
college's administration to take up a teaching post in Ottawa. 

Campbell's firm endorsement of continued affiliation with 
the U of T may relieve the anxieties of some faculty and 
students who believe the university's largest satellite campus is 
slowly creeping toward separation from St. George. 

When asked if Scarborough could survive as _ an 
independent university, Campbell replied; "I think that it is 
possible." However, he emphasized that "it would take a 
major operation in terms of effort in promoting accreditation 
for a graduate programme. This would be a major hurdle. 

"It would be chancey getting students to become part of 
such an institution. It would be quite an effort." 

Like his predecessor, Campbell possesses considerable 
administrative expertise. 

He served as Associate Dean of the Faculty of Arts and 
Science from 1964 to 1968. The governments of both Jordan 
and Kenya have employed him as an advisor on economic 

However, Campbell gained notoriety throughout the 
university community as chairman of the Presidential Ad- 
visory Committee on Disciplinary Procedures which convened 

in 1 968 at the most intense period of student discontent on 


The committee was formed, in Campbell's words, "because 
not much attention had been paid to disciplinary procedures 
over the previous decades." 

A growing amount of student unrest focused attention on 
the Caput — a committee comprised of 24 administrators 
which ranks as the highest disciplinary body over students in 
the university, judged infractions of the rules committed by 

The committee's report advocated sweeping reforms of 
disciplinary procedures, but it was never adopted due to 
hostility from some faculty and administrators who wanted to 
make no concessions to student activists. 

Are the' recommendations still valid today? "Yes," said 
Campbell. "But some modifications are desirable." 

Because "faculty and administration moved pretty rapidly 
to make changes in the structure," student radicalism has 
subsided, he asserted. 

"The overt action era generally has waned, Campbell 
added. "Whether it Uhe student movement^ has gone 
underground, I am not close enough to these affairs to say." 

At Scarborough College, Campbell should experience little 
hostility from the student body. Student leaders at the college 
have traditionally eschewed direct action and have opted 
instead for promoting reformism. 

Campbell has taken a cautious approach to the question of 
parity. "It is, certainly, in items like discipline, an absolutely 
desirable principle." But, "it is not a principle that should 
prevail in all organizations." 

Introducing parity to all of the college's legislative 
committees "is something we will have to look at," he said. 
Campbell has proposed a number of changes affecting the 
power structure of the college. An official has been appointed 
lo "supervise budget preparation and financial analyses." 
Under Plumptre, budget preparation was his own 

Tories slash stipends of para-med students 
interns stipends 


The elimination of living 
allowances for students interning in 
para-medical professions may cause 
a shortage of these workers in On- 
tario hospitals, according to a brief 
from the Students Administrative 

The brief, written by University 
Commissioner John Creelman (Scar 
II) and SAC rep Irene Miller (Food 
Sc. Ill) will be presented to the 
Ontario Ministry of Health. It has 
already passed trie'SAC executive, 
and will come before the full council 
for endorsation this week. 

Student nurses in diploma 
programs, registered nursing 
assistants, technicians and other in- 
terns including therapists now all 
receive either free room and board 
or living allowances while in 
training. These are all being cut off. 

while the work they must do in this 
period is not discontinued. 

In addition, nurses and nursing 
assistants previously paid no tuition. 

Now nurses are required to pay $250 
and nursing assistants $150. 

Nurses at university are not 
subject to these regulations. Instead, 
like the rest of university students, 
iheir fees went up in the general rise 
last spring. 

The removal of the stipends is due 
to "constraints on financing" ac- 
cording to a letter from Ontario 
Health Minister Richard Potter to 
the heads of institutions affected by 
this policy. However, the SAC brief 
argues that in the long run the 
cutbacks will hurt the Ontario

specifically concerned with 
dieticians and physical and oc- 
cupational therapists, cites the fact

that Ontario already imports large 
numbers of personnel in these 
categories, and that most of these do 
not stay longer than two years. 
Because the living wage for interns 
has been discontinued, it will 
become more expensive for a 
physiotherapist or dietician to ob- 
tain a diploma, and will act as a 
deterrent for students to intern in 
Ontario hospitals. Therefore, the 
cu rrent shortage will not be 
alleviated and may well be in- 
tensified, the report argues. 

One important area such a 

shortage may affect is the trend 
towards medical teams. This con- 
cept emphasises using specifically 
trained para-medics in order to free 
doctors for services only they can 
provide. Since para-medics charge 

less, the team approach leads to 
much lower medical costs. 

Creelman will present the brief to 
the health ministry on Wednesday. 
Potter is on vacation and will not be- 
available until the end of September.

Manager rips-off Erindale's money 

SAC-sponsored book store project flops 


A project for a permanent, 
centrally-run, campus-wide used 
book store system Tell through this 
summer due to both lack of work by 
the organizer and lack of support 
from local student councils. 

Rob Morningstar, who was to be 
paid $450 by SAC to organize it, has 
left Toronto with $120 of Erindale 
students' money, after doing little 
work on the project. 

Morningstar had run a sale, called 
Students Association for Levelling 
of Expenses (SALE) , at Erindale 
for the past two years. The third 
year Erindale student was employed 
by SAC to study the feasibility of a 
cross-campus SALE during the 
summer and report back to council. 

Last May, Morningstar had 
approached SAC with the sugges- 
tion that the seven arts and sciences 
colleges and SAC support the non- 
profit store. 

Students bringing in books to sell 
would quote their desired prices. 
SALE would try to sell these texts 
with a five per cent surcharge, and 
return the price asked to the seller, 
less five per cent. The ten per cent 
commission would be used to 
provide operating funds, including 
paying staff. 

The expected savings to stiiiients 
would be substantial. 

Morningstar hoped to have five 
stores, covering all three campuses, 
located in various art colleges. If 
successful, the stores would even- 
tually sell records. . tapes, clothing, 
and handicrafts. 

In principle, al) colleges and SAC 
heartily supported the concept of a 
student-run store for buying and 
reselling of used books among 

Unfortunately, plans collapsed in 
mid-August when SAC finally 
realized Morningstar had done little 
more than contact college and the 
engineering faculty councils in late- 

In early summer the SAC 
executive had voted a total of $ 1 ,050 
for SALE, including Morningstar's 
salary, pending a detailed report by 
Morningstar on SALE and local 
councils financial support of it. The 
executive agreed that local councils 
would have control over store 
operations in the first year, and 
SAC would 1 not necessarily take 
control later. 

Morningstar reported back 

regularly to SAC services com- 
missioner Bill Streadman, respon- 
sible for the project: 

"I took his word for it, and waited 
for his final report", Steadman ex- 
plained with disappointment. 

He could not reach Morningstar 
the week before his report was due. 
However Morningstar had earlier 
assured Steadman that "it looks like 
things will be all set up". 

When Morningstar did not show 
up with his report on August 12, 
SAC defeated the motion to give 
him any money. 

"By that time 1 was getting 
complaints from St. Mike's and 
Trinity, asking what Morningstar 
was doing", Steadman recalled. 

"Morningstar tried to put 
something over on us", he con- 
tinued. "He did not honor an agree- 
ment, and I had placed my trust in 

Meanwhile, Morningstar had 
collected $125 from the Students' 
Administrative Government of 
Erindale (SAGE), money which, 
SAGE president Paul Moran says, 
it will never gel back. No other 
council had agreed to give Mor- 
ningstar the $120 he requested from 

Morningstar left Toronto at the 
end of August, is now attending first 
year law at Queen's University, and 
cannot be reached. The only ex- 
planation Steadman ever received 
from Morningstar came two 
day after he was refused payment by 
SAC. Morningstar claimed he had 
"problems of cooperation", and 
couldn't follow through. "A few 
things have changed since I talked 
to you last", he told Steadman. 

Moran explained that SAGE gave 
Morningstar the $125 because 
"SAC approved the plans. But com- 
munications between SAC and us 
are not so good. It was both our 

"We definitely want a co-co- 
operative type of used-book sale", 
Moran said. "But we already set up 
a bookstore here at Erindale, and we 
don't need another level of

operate with other colleges,

with the major disadvantage of 
seeking money for a project during 
the summer when most local council 
members are not around to make 
such decisions. 

Admitted Scarborough student 
council president David Onley' "The 
matter was not discussed by council 
because it was difficult to get a 
quorum in the summer". 

"It was a great idea", Onley 
conceded, but "we decided to wait 
until Morningstar gave us a full, 
detailed report. All we had received 
so far from him was one letter of one 
page. We weren't going to risk the 
money ourselves, and we waited for 
SAC to react to his report". 

The reaction of other local 
councils was similar. 

"I thought it was a good idea", 
said Victoria University Students' 
Administrative Council (VUSAC) 
education commissioner Rick 
Gregory. "People are getting ripped 
off all the time at the Textbook 

But, "VUSAC was unable to get 
a quorum," explained Gregory. "By 
the middle of August we hadn't done 
anything. Things always fall apart in 
the summer." 

The Engineering Society was also 
very much in favor of the idea, 
although it could not see its being 

"In Engineering, there aren't 
many who want to get rid of their 
text books, except perhaps first year 
students", said the Society's presi- 
dent Scott Joliffe. "We'd be lucky if 
we could transfer 1,000 books". 

Joliffe sent Morningstar a letter 
in the first week of August ex- 

pressing enthusiasm over the project 
and promising to look into the 
scheme more closely. The Society 
never received a reply from him. 

Joliffe suggests that major plans 
be made for "one big good used- 
book sale on campus. 

The University College Literary 
Society did not look into the matter 
until mid-mid-August. 

"We would have had the sale, we 
thought it was a good idea, but our 
college is being renovated and we 
Could not get any room for it", 
exprajned the Lit.'s president Vicki 

However, St. Michael's Student 
Union is not so enthusiastic about 
the project. 

"We decided unanimously against 
the idea" said the union's vice- 
president Tom Hamer. He preferred 
his college's system of operating its 
own annual used book sale. "Our 
college book sale is not in it for the 
profit. We sell books at the seller's 
price, and at no more than 50 per 
cent of the original cost". 

St. Michael's Union felt that if a 
used book store was not subsidized 
enough, to put a mark-up on the 
books was pointless. St. Michael's 
own book sale is heavily subsidized 
by its student union. 

New College council, although 
supporting it in principle, was wary 
of SALE'S benefits for its college, 
because of the large number of 
professional students at the college 
who tend not to sell their books. 

Meanwhile, SAC plans to set up a 
committee to look into setting up a 

SAC ran a used book exchange 

quite successfully for many years, 
until three years ago. Then it ex- 
panded to sell new books as well, 
lost money and was closed down. 

In, the long run, says Steadman, 
the onus will be left up to "local 
college initiative" in coordinating an 
amalgamation of used-book stores 
lo serve the university. 

Although the possibility of a 
central, student-run used-book sale 
has been aborted for this year, four 
colleges are holding their own sales 
within the next few weeks run by 
thier respective student councils. 

Trinity College is running its 
fourth annual sale. A three-day 
collection period begins on 
Wednesday, and the sale will be held 
for one week beginning next Mon- 
day at Cartwright Hall at St. 
Hilda's College. Students ask for a 
price for their books, and if they are 
not sold, the books are returned to 
their owners. The books are usually 
sold at about half the original price. 

" The St. Michael's College sale, at 
Brennan Hall, Room A, will start 
selling its books today. Students can 
charge any price up to 50 per cent of 
Jhe original cost, and if the book is 
not sold, it is returned to the seller. 
The sale will run until the course 
change 'deadline October 6. 

The Scarborough College sale 
takes a ten per cent commission on 
sales for operating charges. The sale 
will run for three to four weeks 
starting next Monday at the coun- 
cil's reception office. 

" Erindale's "Ministry of Plenty" 
store charges 5 per cent on the price

Old, new faces people top 

First of a series... 

With all the pomp and dignity befitting the occasion, the new 
governors of the University of Toronto somberly gathered together on July 
fourth for their first forma! meeting. Only three days before, the 50 had 
taken control of the country's largest university from their predecessors, 
the academic Senate and financial Board of Governors. 

The move threw the university's varied estates - students, teaching 
staff, administrators - support staff, alumni, and government community 
representatives - together in a permanent body for the first time in the 
university's history. And, it precipitated a shake-up of the administration's 
top hierarchy and parallel office switches. 

The new University of Toronto Act creating the Governing Council and 
laying down the guidelines for its operations was passed amidst 
accrimonious student-faculty debate before the provincial legislature's 
Human Resources Committee. Students had championed equal student-staff 
representation on the new governing body, while U of T Faculty 
Association representatives had threatened to close down the university if 
the government gave in to the student demands. In the end. then Colleges 
and Universities Minister John White gave in to the faculty pressure, 
leaving faculty with 12 members to the students' eight. 

During the clash, students and faculty had initially agreed on one 
area; that there should be an academic majority on the council (there isn't - 
with 16 government appointees and eight alumni) and that-the so-called 
community representative should not be government yes-people. (Nearly 
half the government appointees were Board reappointments, and most are 

Despite the prestige attached to the new jobs, the government 
reportedly had some difficulty in finding people to fill its slots, although no 
effort was apparently made to satisfy the student demand that government 
appointees more accurately reflect the socio-economic composition of 
Ontario. There were some minor exceptions, but not really of the kind the 
students wanted. 

Lynn Williams, United Steelworkers of America District 6 
representative, was their concession to student calls for labor 
representation. Williams is not exactly the picture of the working man 
students probably had in mind. A bureaucrat, Williams sided with 
conservative unionists in denouncing the NDP's Waffle wing. 

The government appointments came straight from the office of 
Premier William Davies, bypassing Universities Minister George Kerr. 
Simcoe Hall insiders diagnosed it as a blatant attempt to appease the press 
by picking four media people: Maclean's editor Peter Newman, CFRB 
Radio's Betty Kennedy, Southam Press Vice-President Gordon N. Fisher (an 
uncle of Mrs. Evans coincidentalty), and Toronto Sun publisher Edward A. 
Dunlop (a former Conservative MPP and Cabinet Minister). 

McMaster University Medical Centre trustee Marnie Paikin, who 
worked with Evans while he was Health Sciences vice-president and dean 
of McMaster's medical School, was among the relative unknowns 
-included in the government's honors list. 

U of T Medical Faculty Associate Anthony Cecum relinquished his 
position with the university to accept government appointment. 

All the others' claim to fame, like their Board of Governors 
predecessors, lies in their business acumen, there apparently still being a 
feeling that you need hard-headed businessmen and lawyers to run a 
university. They number seven in businessmen (plus two of the media 
people whose jobs are more management tfian journalistic) and two 

Chairing the council is former Board vice-chairman C. Malin Harding, 
chief executive officer of Harding Carpets Limited and director, like his 
fellow business appointees to the council, of a string of corporations. 

Harding solemnly advised the council's first official meeting that 
members would "have to make sure we spend our time at these meetings 
as profitably as passible." He also presents the image of being always 
disorganized, unsure of what's about to come up next. Depite several 
erroneous rulings, council members have been reluctant to challenge him. 
He always seems somewhat perturbed by the time some members 
spend questioning what he apparently regards as minor, details. 

Former Board chairman and now vice-chairman Bill Harris, often 
accused of being less sympathetic to student causes in the past, has shown 
himself in the open coulcil meetings to be a liberal, clashing with the more 
conservative elements of the council . An investment dealer, Harris has 
several directorships under his belt. 

Liberal Senator Daniel Lang accepted council appointment, 
though like many of his Board compatriots, he distrusts the council's 
unicameral (one-tier rather than two) system of government, dismissing it 
as a lot of "jingoism". 

Fellow Board veterans -alumni John Tory and Sidney Hermandt seem 
to have a contest going to see who can be the most conservative. Tory, 
according to a close associate, has described Radio Varisty as "communist". 

"I would plead with this council ... to forget the words 
unicameralism and bicameralism", Hermandt told the council's first meeting 

On another occasion, he announced, "I would like to go every further to 
the right than Mr. Mackenzie: 

Former Board member W.O. Twaits. chairman of Imperial Oil 
expressed his current knowdege of university affiars at one melting. 

'The academic year beings in early October doesn't it?" deadpanned 

Most government appointees are •content to let the administrators 
carry the bag. 

Speaking to a meeting of the Ontario Federaton of Students, 
Universities Minister George Kerr said lay people were "overimpressed" by 
university administrators. 

The government appointees, reflecting their divergent philosophies, 
apparently have not attempted to form as a cohesive caucus. Teaching staff 
members, on the contrary, seem to vote together, led by their most 
conservative elements. Philosophy's Charles Hanly and Political Economy's 
Harry Eastman. 

Hanly has been the campus' resident champion of the academic guild 
mentality, with a zeal that has probably discredited him in the eyes of his 
fellow governors by now. Hanly has sat on the Ontario Confederation of 
Faculty Associations executive for many years and was recently appointed 
by the Governing Council to represent the university on the Ontario Council 
of Universities. 

Hanly, who contested the seat on the unicameral body doesn't like 
unicameral bodies. 

He blames it for what he calls the "disastrous breakdown of 
planning at the College of Art" (referring to the incident fast spring where 
conservative faculty engineered the outster of the college's radically 
innovative president). 

He insisted that the government was very skeptical about 
unicameralism, citing this spring's bicameral University of Waterloo Act as 
proof of his thesis. (Part-time council rep Joyce Denyer corrected him, 
pointing out that bicameralism was requested by the U of Waterllo 
administrators and not specifically favored by the government.) 

Eastman, like Hanly. has been less than discreet in his irritation at the 
council to allow faculty majority on its Academic Affairs Committee, 
he argued that. the council "really needs people whose business has 
been professors" and have taught. Warming to his case, he said the 
non'academic majority structure would be taken as a "sign that the 
Governing Council distrusts" teaching staff on the committee.

No booze at Sid Smith: LLBO cans SAC pub 

Drinking hole dlres up' A ruling by the Liquor Licencing of Ontario Board has effectively killed a SAC-sponsored pub at Sfd Smith. 

SAC requests administration grant 
to reactivate information bureau 


Starling today, the SAC 
Information Bureau will again be 
operating at the new SAC number 
of 928-4911. 

To be directed by Services 
Commissioner Bill Steadman and 
SAC Vice President Ross Flowers, 
the bureau's main function is to 
assist students after normal SAC 
office hours. Services provided will 
include information about on-and- 
off campus events, facilities and aids 
to students. 

At the beginning, the bureau will 
operate from 5 pm until 9 pm, 
Monday to Thursday. Later, if it 
proves successful, Steadman hopes 
the service will expand to include 

Sunday evenings and Saturdays 

throughout the day. 

Four or five workers, to be paid 

two dollars an hour, will be recruited 

by advertisement to man the phones. 
The Services Commission has 
budgeted $1060 to run the bureau. 

Last year SAC received 
approximately $400 from the U of T 
administration to help fund the 
bureau. Simcoe Hall cooperated 
because it reduced the load on their 
own staff. 

This week, Steadman and 
Flowers plan to request 51200 from 
administration coordinator of stu- 
dent services Lois Reimer. Rather 
than augment the service, whatever 
is received will save SAC money. 

Last year, says Flowers, the

Steadman intends to carry the 
bureau one step further and act as 
an unofficial ombudsman for 
students. He feels such a service is 
needed because the university does 
not have an ombudsman. 

There will be no pub on the eastern plaza of Sidney Smith Hall this year 
due to an unexpected, last-minute ruling of the Liquor Licencing Board of 
Ontario. The ruling prohibits the sale of liquor in outdoor locations which 
are not adjacent to licenced indoor premises. 

The refusal came as a disappointment to the Students' Administrative 
Council which hoped to repeat the successful pub held there last September. 

SAC Services Commissioner Bill Steadman said the final refusal came 
Sept. 1 after he had worked six weeks planning and arranging the project. 

The university police, U of T Health Services, Arts and Science Dean Bob 
Greene and U of T Vice-President and Provost Don Forster had all given 
written endorsement of the pub. 

Any presently licensed building on campus could be licensed for an 
outdoor pub, however, according to an official from the Liquor Control 

Several campus buildings already have indoor pubs. SAC Vice President 
Ross Flowers, said the late refusal for the Sid Smith Plaza left no time to 
devise a plan for an alternate location. 

The pub, which would have served food and beer, was to be open from 
noon to midnight six days a week from Sept. llth to 29th. 

A pinball machine and other games were to be set up on the site. Flowers 
said when he asked the board why it had allowed a licence for the same 
location and activities last year, he was told that the agreement made last 
summer was a mistake due to a failure in realizing the true nature ofSAC's 

Regulations state that outdoor vending of liquor may take place only in 
connection with a building which is already licenced. In such cases, although 
the drinks are served outdoors, sales are considered an extention of indoor 

While some concessions on outside liquor sales are made for banquets and 
special occasions permits lasting several days, SAC's request was for loo 
long a time period, the official said. 

The Liquor Licencing Board has recently received a number of similar 
applications from other universities, he noted. While all have been refused, 
they have caused the Board to begin a study "to revise the whole question of 
liquor on campuses". New guidlines favouring the creation of temporary 
outdoor campus pubs may be created, he said.

Capitalist "welfare bums'-major issue: Lewis 


David Lewis, federal NDP leader, 
lashing out at " corporate welfare 
bumbs" pledged to the party's 
provincial council yesterday to 
make taxation the major issue in the 
upcoming federal election 

The long-awaited tax reform bill, 
according to Lewis, worsened the lot 
of the average Canadian while 
leaving corporate taxes untouched. 
The corporations sighed with relief 
after seeing the new law, he said, 
quoting Stelco's annual report thai 
"the new law is not expected to have 
any direct effect on Stelco's 
operation." He noted that personal 
income taxes will go up 3% as of 
Jan. I, 1973. 

"Deferred taxes," through which 

corporations can withhold taxes due 
indefinitly, were denounced by 
Lewis as a "corporate community 
chesl-most of which is coming from 
hard-working Canadians." The 
council applauded when he spoke of 
"improvershed corporate directors 
driving to Ottawa in Lincoln Con- 
tinentals to collect dough amounting 
to hundreds of millions." 

He emphasized that he was not 
talking about small businesses but 
about giant corporations. Up until 
the end of 1 968, the total amount or 
deferred taxes was $3.6 billion. At 
the same time, the total budget of 
the Department of Health and 
Welfare, including all social 
assistance programs with the ex- 
ception of old age security 
payments, was only $2.6 billion-one 

billion less than is owing in defsrred 


He pointed out that six 
corporations accounted for one- 
third of all deferred taxes — Inco- 
$238 million, Stelco-$l6l million, 
Bell Canada-$224 million, Alcan- 
$132 million, Dofasco-$104 million 
and Imperial Oil-$144 million. 

' The government provides the 

corporations with the loopholes and 
the corporations provide the 
Liberals and Conservatives with the 
money for their election cam- 
paigns," he said, adding, "They 
both hold hands in your pockets.'' 
While Lewis' hard-hitting speech 
was enthusiastically received, some 
party members criticized him for 
not taking a strong socialist 


The position of the left dissidents 
is that increasing corporate taxation 
would act like a band-aid. 

Until the basic structures of 
society are changed, they say, the 
problems that concern Lewis — 
poverty, unequal distribution of 
welath, and the corporate rip-off of 
the people, will continue.

A non-pollutant plastic has been 
developed by James Guillet, a U of 
T chemistry professor. The new, 
plastic reduces pollution by dis- 
integrating gradually into a powder 
which can be attacked by bacteria 
and converted into carbon dioxide 
and water. 

This process is achieved by 
introducing a light sensitive 

chemical into the long chain of 
plastic molecules. When the 
chemical absorbs ultra violet light 
from the unfiltered rays of the sun, 
the chain breaks. However, plastic is 
unaffected by artificial light or 
sunlight filtered through glass. The 
time for the process of dis- 
integration can be adjusted during

The chief advantage of the plastic, 
known as Ecolyte, is that it will 
automatically recycle into the earth. 
Thus, it offers a partial solution to 
the garbage disposal and Utter 
problems. Since Ecolyte is stable, it 
can be safely used for food 

Guillet has assigned all rights and 
titles to Ecolyte to the University of 
Toronto. In turn U of T has granted 
Ecoplastics a world licence.

No responsible community role to play 

Sewell damns students at St. Mike's forum 

Students cannot develop a true sense ot community spirit, claims Alderman John 


Reform Alderman John Sewell 
lold about 40 students last Thursday 
that they can't play a responsible 
role in the communities in which 
they live. 

The Ward 7 alderman told a St. 
Michael's College orientation forum 
that lofty ideals, a tendency to tran- 
science and disinterest prevent 
students from developing a true 
sense of community values. 

Unless someone has lived in a 
community for a number of years, 
he doesn't really have a stake in it, 
he said. The- only people he trusted 
were working class and over 30. 

"This is just a fact of life we have 
to accept." 

However, there are a lot of 
I* "juicy" issues that students can get 
£ their teeth into, he added. One of 
£ these is the University of Toronto's 
I policy of tearing down habitable 
|j buildings in order to qualify for

visibly worn jeans, appeared relaxed 
as he answered students' questions 
such as "Who is my alderman?" 

In a more serious vein, Sewell 
said that he is afraid that people are 
losing control of their communities. 
Over the objections of many 
citizens, the pro-development City 
Council, led by Alderman David 
Rotenberg, has continually ap- 
proved street widenings and high- 
rise re-zoning applications. 

He stated that such issues affect 
residents much more than matters 
dealt with at the provincial or 
federal levels. To Sewell, garbage 
collection was of more immediate 
concern than Canada's diplomatic 
relations with China. 

When asked about the upcoming 
Dec. 4 municipal election, Sewell 
predicted that only six or seven 
"closely-knit" reform candidates 
would be elected to the 23 seal City 

He also predicted that Rotenberg 
would lose his bid for mayor. When 
asked who would be a viable alter- 
native for mayor, Sewell quipped, 
"Try Tony O'Donahue, I guess, 
because he's stupid." 

Neither Rotenberg nor 
O'Donohue have yet announced 
plans to contest the mayoralty, but 
both are expected to in the near

A preliminary meeting at the 
University of Windsor in May set 
the bail rolling, with the formation 
of a national steering committee, 
mandated to solicit proposals for the 
new union and write a draft 

Delegates from Ontario's larger 
universities questioned the feasibili- 
ty of establishing a national 
organization and said they preferred 
to consolidate and improve the 
fledging Ontario Federation of 
Students (OFS), which was formed 
last, spring. 

Few representatives from the 
Atlantic provinces attended the 
Windsor conference, while the main 
protagonists for a national union 
were delegates from Simon Fraser 
University, the University of 
Saskatchewan (Regina campus), the 
University of Manitoba, and the 
host University of Windsor. 

At a conference of prairie student 
councils in Regina on July 14-16, 
representatives' from eight un- 
iversities and technical institutes 
agreed that a national students' un- 
ion is the best vehicle for tackling 
problems that face students. 

Only the University of 
Saskatchewan opposed this resolu- 
tion. Delegates passed a statement 
of principles listing priorites in for- 
ming a new union, although no 
delegation had the power to commit 
its students' union to definites plans. 

The prairie schools indicated a 
regional association will be— 

organized even if a national body is 
not established. 

Meanwhile, plans for the 
November conference are well 
behind schedule. 

Bruce Cameron, president of the 
Carlelon University Students' 
Association and a member of the 
national steeering committee for the 
new union, said the committee had 
hoped, to have a preliminary draft of 
a constitution sent to member coun- 
cils by now, but the person drafting 
the document at Simon Fraser was 
lied up working for the New 
Democratic Party in the recent 
British Columbia election. 

"By our original timetable we had 
hoped to have a draft constitution 
sent out, feedback returned, and a 
new document produced, on which 
councils could have then mandated 
delegates to act upon in november," 
he said in an interview. 

"Now I don't know how 
successful this timetable is going to 

Cameron noted "a certain 
amount of arrogance" among On- 
tario university student councillors 
toward the idea of a national 

"In Ontario, there's a feeling that 
we've got to get OFS off the ground, 
and in dealing with the Wright 
report, we find the national issues tie 
in anyway, and there's a certain 
amount of arrogance that we can do 
it ourselves," he added. 

There's a feeding that national 
issues can be dealt with by Ontario 
as Ontario, and with only informal 
relations with other provinces." 

Cameron added that the 

Maritime provinces were "very 
suspicious" about anything 
happening west of the New 
Brunswick border. 

The problem with the Atlantic 
provinces is that the universities are 
now in a fairly conservative state 
and are suspicious of CUS and 
anything like it." 

Cameron asserted that the 
November conference will probably 
see an organization form with 
representatives from most 

Indications are that conferences 
will take place in Ottawa, but final 
plans have not been made. Steering 
committee members are chasing 
various sources orfunding, including 
ihe federal government. 

Originally, students planned the 
conference in Toronto during -the 
annual meeting of the Association of 
Universities and Colleges of 
Canada, but apparently they now 
want the new union lo be born free 
of administration connections. 
Another factor in the move from 
Hogtown is a disastrous national 
conference on university financing 
held there in July.

Oppositions mounts 

OFS launches campaign against fee increases 


As Ontario post-secondary students return to classes, a 
major campaign is being organized among students and the 
public to oppose the provincial government's increase of 
tuition fees. 

Last spring, Colleges and Universities Minister George 
Kerr announced that all college and university fees would be 
increased by $100. At the same time, nursing schools began 
charging fees and residence for the first time, and graduate 
fees were increased by about $400. 

The vehicle being used for organization of the campaign 
is the newly-formed Ontario Federation of Students 
successor to the Ontario Union of Students. 

OFS consists of the membership of 18 student councils 
It was founded just after the announcement of a scheduled 
fees increase last March. Although OFS was intended to 
place more emphasis upon communication between its 
members and less emphasis on political activity, it has since 
found it necessary to plunge into direct political action. 

The 18 student council members of OFS held two 
meetings over the summer to discuss the situation and pass 
various resolutions. In order for resolutions to become OFS 

policy, a majority of local councils must later pass them. 

In the second general meeting held July 24 at OISE the 
OFS rejected the concept of a September fees strike which 
was proposed at the earlier meeting in June at Guelph This 
stand was f e |t to be too militant as it would endanger stu- 
dents registration. Fees must be paid prior to registra- 
lion at most universities and colleges. 

At this time the OFS decided to encourage a province- 
wide study day in October 10 followed by a two day 
referendum m which Ontario post-secondary students will 
decide whether to protest the increased tuition costs by a 
second term fees strike. Nearly two-thirds of the I8-member 
councils had preferred this method of fighting the province 
while only two councils favoured the immediate strike. 

The campaign was introduced at the individual student 
evel by a mailing of 50,000 pamphlets asking students to pay 
their tuition fees in two installments Thus the option of 
opposmg the Ontario government by witholding second 
installment due in January, is left open. 

The OFS education campaign specifically focusses on 
two demands: 

♦ deferral of the tuition fee increase until there has been full 

consultation of affected groups about the financing of post- 
secondary education, and the final report of the province's 
Commission or. Post-Secondary Education has been relesed

considered to be independent of their parents from 25 

OFS members have presented these demands in meetings 
with government officials. ^

committee including Eric Miglion. OFS treasurer and U of T 
SAC President met with Ontario's Minister to these demands 
of Colleges and Universities George Kerr. Kerr's response to 
these demands was a flat and unequivocal "no", but he made 
^personal committment to keep fees from increasing in the 

The OFS feels that there is more at stake than a $100 fee 
increase: the threat of further more substantial increases 
which will continually lesser the low-income student's 
accessibility to higher education in Ontario 

OFS also met with Gordon Parr. Chairman of the 
Committee on University Affairs, ft had scheduled an 
appointment with Darcy McKeough, Provincial Treasurer 
but ^ "signed from his post just before the meeting was 
scheduled, last Thursday. 

One result from the OFC confrontations with the 
government is that the age at which students are conside 
to independent of their parents has been lowered to 24 from

The study day will play a crucial part in discussing the 
strategy to be taken in January. OFS intends to encourage 
students not to attend classes on this date so that they will 
tamihanze themselves with the issue. Students will be able to 
hear and talk to various speakers and groups on their 

No! all Ontario post-secondary educational institutions 
are members of OFS. The Universities of Windsor 
McMaster, Brock and Waterloo Lutheran have yet to join the 
organization. J 

In the first general meeting of OFS, the University of 
Ottawa and Laurentian University were adamant in their 
support of an immediate fees strike. The University of Ottawa 
later withdrew from the federation because it felt that the 
stand being taken then was insufficiently strong (There is a a 
higher proportion of students from low-income families 
attending both Ottawa and Laurentian.) 

Other universities are more actively involved in the OFS 
campaign. The University of Toronto Students' Ad- 
ministrative Council printed and sent out its own copy of the

The York University student council, made the OFS 
education campagian a part of their orientation, discussing 
the importance of opposing the government's fees increase 

Loyola College survives, 
but will merge with SGWU 

MONTEAL (CUPI) - Loyola College of 
Montreal won a fight to ensure its conti- 
nued existence during the summer after the 
institution's students, faculty, and admi- 
nistration hoined forces to oppose ac- 
ceptance of a report by the Quebec Council of 
Universities (QCU), 

Education Minister Francois Cloutier 
announced in mid July he would not follow 
the QCU recommendations which called for 
the phasing out of university level instruction 
at Loyola by 1975. The recommendations 
were based on expected space re- 
quirements of the college compared 
with those of other post-secondary institutions 
in the area. It was suggested the facilities be 
turned over to a French speaking community 
college (CEGEP). 

After announcing Loyola's new lease of 
life, the Quebec government entered the 
merger negotiations already underway 
between Lyola and Sir George Williams 
University (SGWU). Cloutier said the QCU 
report did not take human factors into ac- 
count. The uniqueness and assets of Loyola 
were heavily stressed in protests mounted 
after the report was leaked to the Montreal 
Star July 5. By July 10 the oppostion 
movement had gelled into a highly organized 

The minister's announcement followed 
meetings he held with Loyola president 
Patrick Malone and student representatives. 

During the short campaign the movement 
charged the QCU with irresponsiblity and 
unfairness. Malone said statistics used in the 
37 page document were inaccurate. 

"They're set down to make a case," he 

The Loyola Students Association started a 
massive campaign to obtain support in the 
Montreal community. Information booths 
were set up at major shopping plazas to col- 
lect 30,000 signatures on a petition to be 
set to Cloutier protesting the recommendations. 

Expressions of support came from other 
student unions in the Montreal area, as well as 
from other sectors of the city community. 

It appears the public protest forced the 
government to make a quick decision on the 
report, which critics condemned for jeopar- 
dizing the SGWU-Loyola negotiations in 
progress since 1969. 

The first tripartite merger meeeting held 
August 15 merely brought the government up 
to date on the situation. A joint statement 
released afterwards said the " Education 
department will have put together the main 
elements of the file that the Minister of 
Education wishes to receive before he an- 
nounces more specificially the government's 
views regarding the creation of a new : 
university. !

The OUAA football League has 

been rearranged for the 1972-73 
season. Last year the league was 
divided into two sections, with two 
divisions in each section. After 
Laurentian University decided not 
lo participate in football, the league 
was reorganised into two sections, 
with four teams in the east and seven 
in the west. The Blues will play 
Carlelon, Ottawa, and Queen's in 
home and away games, while each 
learn in the Western Section will 

meel the other members of the 
section once. At the conclusion of 
the regular schedule, the first-place 
team in the east will meet the third- 
place Western Section team in one 
semi-final game. The other semi- 
final puis the first-place Western 
Section team against the second- 
place team in the west. . . . York

able to meet the demand for 
physical recreation. This argument 
suggests that even with a new men's 
athletic complex there would still be' 
an important use for the gymnasia 
in Harl House, not as an overflow 
area for organized programs but as 
the home of more casual athletic 

"In view of Ihe cosl of renovation 
and in consideration of the general 
demand for physical recreation, it 
appears desirable to proceed ex- 
perimentally in the North Wing. 
When Ihe Men's Athletic Associa- 
tion moves out, a certain amount of 
space now used for business offices 
would be released for other uses, but 
Ihe main gymnasia, pool and 
locker — shower areas should be 
used for new programs of 
recreational alhlelics. At the end of 
a trial period of about five years, an 
assessment of the success of and 
need for the program should be 
made. If, at llial lime, the use of the 
North Wing for casual athletics 
appears less important than the 
redevelopment suggested by the 
Board of Stewards, the plans for 
remodelling can be implemented. 

"Our sixlh recommendation is 
thai, when the Men's Athletic 
Association moves into its new 
premises, ihe Board of Stewards 
arrange to use the north wing for 
casual athletic programs which 
should be co-educational and that at 
the end of a trial period of not longer 
than five years the use of the north 
wing be re-examined by the Board of 

Although the decision has finally 
been made to build a new complex, 
Harl House will still have to meet 
the men's athletic needs for the 
immediate future.

York Yeomen challenge Blues tonight 


Something old, something new, something 
borrowed, and it should add up to a good 
night for the Blues in the seasofls opener al 8 
pm against our northern neighbours, York 
Yeomen, on the artificial turf of the CNE 

The old are the veterans, particularly all- 
Canadian quarterback Wayne Dunkley and a 
corps of speedy, effective receivers. The new 
are perhaps the finest collection of high school 
grads the Varsity coaching staff has ever seen. 
The borrowed is the single wing, a venerable 
passing formation made popular by former 
Varsity athletic director Warren Stevens 
when he introduced the forward pass to 
Canada in I93I. 

Games against York used to be little more 
than a heavy workout however, this year's 
edition of the Yeomen have size, experience 
and the ability to score points — many points. 
York opened its season Saturday, trampling 
RMC 48-0, and according to Varsity head 
coach Ron Murphy, the score is an accurate 
reflection of YorRs improvement. 

"York has an excellent football team," 
Murphy said after the game. "Most of their 
key players are back from last year, and they 
have the additional advantage of already 
playing one real game compared to our 
practice scrimmages." 

Due to the numerous graduations among 
offensive linemen, Dunkley will probably have 
to throw frequently until the running game 
slowly comes into shape. Key receivers should 
be sophomore Barry Wagdin, who sparked 
last year's comeback against York, plus Dave 
Quick, John Raimey, Brent Elsey, and Libert 

Dave Quick moves into tight end, replacing 
veteran Stew MacSween who's returned to 
the defensive secondary where he starred for 
two years before making the switch to offense 
in I97l. Two other familiar names from the 
offensive backfield, Cor Doret and Guido 

lantorno, will also spend most of the 1972 
campaign on defense, but since turnabout is 
always fair pjay, defensive tackle Jake Lipsett. 
has traded roles and is now working as an 
offensive guard, 

Murphy and his assistants Dave Copp, 
Tom Walt, John McManus and Doug Wyles 
hope that tonight's game will provide some 
answers to their lineup problems in time for 
this weekend's home opener against Universi- 
ty of Ottawa. 

Fourly-nine candidates are still in the race 
for the twenty-four starting positions, but 
versatility and depth can certainly com- 
pliment, but never replace, solid ability 
among the members of the starting units. 

The football Blues have never lost to York, 
although last year Varsity needed three 
touchdowns in the final quarter to gain a 24- 
12 victory. 

Looking back on the past two weeks of 
rugged training. Murphy expects his team to 
be ready for tonight's activities. 

"We have excellent personnel and without 
doubt the smartest group of rookies I've ever 
coached. Also, we've been lucky since there 
are relatively fewer injuries compared to past 

So far, most of the publicity has focused on 
Wayne Dunkley, the fourth-year PHE student 
who is unquestionably the key to Blues 1 
offensive strategy. 

Shaking off a painful ankle injury late in 
the 1971 season, he completed a phenomenal 
60 passes in the final two games against 
Queens as Blues narrowly missed the playoffs. 

Perhaps that's why there are no traditional 
starting rosters for tonight's game. As 
Murphy said after a recent practice, "with so 
many positions up for grabs we will be doing a 
lot of substituting and experimentation." 

Offensively, speedy veteran Paul Kitchin 
has shown well as a running back behind the 
blocking of rookie tackles Jim Blainey and 
Mike Sokovnin. 

Blues practice last week on the back playing field for tonight's exhibition game against York. 

Sokovnin is also in the wide-open race to 
replace last year's standout kicker Donny 
Thomson who hasn't fully recovered from 
that serious knee injury in Kingston. 

With so many excellent rookies and the 
ixlensive lineup juggling that's been a feature 
of most practices to date, it's both unfair and 
virtually impossible to single out many 
players for special attention. However, in- 
terfac fans might watch for former Vic half- 
back Aarne Kartna who's raised several 
coaching eyebrows with his outstanding 
broken field running on the kickoff and punt 
return teams. 

Defensively, it's three familiar faces and 
rookie Ken Hussey on the front four. 
Veterans Jim Nicoletti, Nick Grittani and 
massive Walt Dudar all are looking over their 
shoulders apprehensively since some changes 
must be made when svelt Jim Orfanakos 
comes off the injury list. Orf was headed for 
his finest training camp before defensive end 
Jon Dellandrea stepped on his ankle during a 

Linebacking is again solid with returnees 
Hartley Stern and Bob Bloxham, and 1970 
all-star Peter McNabb should be back to his 
old form. 

McNabb, who sat out most of last season 
following a freak injury in the York game, is 

temporarily sidelined with a pulled hamstring, 
but he should be ready for Ottawa on 

Blues' prospects look bright, as the talent 
and coaching are first-rate and if Murphy 
could dress all the capable rookies, who 
knows how high the scoring could get. 
Realistically, if Varsity can eliminate the 
perennial problems of injuries and foolish 
penalties, we could be in store for three 
playoff games at the Stadium. 

But that is the future. The present is York 
and kickoff is eight o'clock at the CNE. 

BLUES NOTES: Murphy was unable to 
get any practice time on the artificial turf but 
apparently York has encountered similar 
problems . . . veteran trainer Howie Ringham 
doesn't expect many problems with the 
footing since most Varsity players are already 
using the rubber cleats; however, Ringham 
says, he does foresee numerous painful arm 
and leg burns from sliding along the turf . . . 
assistant trainer Ed Armstrong and student 
manager Sandy Henderson are also back for 
another year . . . several former Varsity 
players such as John Chapman, Walt Sehr 
and Vic Alboini are involved in the Toronto 
Touch Football League which is packed with 
former CFL stars. 

Hart House to be replaced 

New facilities planned for men's athletics on Harbord 


A new $6,000,000 men's athletic 
building will be constructed on the 
south side of Harbord Street to the 
west of the Benson Building. 

According to the U of T Bulletin 
"It is hoped that the building will be 
ready for use in September 1974." 
However Athletic Directorate Presi- 
dent Dr. G. E. Wodehouse said that 
this date is "unrealistic. It will be 
ihree or four years at least", he said. 
"Underground construction will 
have to be done and a detailed 
engineering letter was sent out to the 
consultants last week." Wodehouse 
said thai the future of the Spadina 
Expressway may also affect the con- 
struction of the new building, 

The sports complex will have 
1 10,000 square feet of usable space, 
with some facilities shared by the 
Benson Building. 

"This is 70,000 square feet less of 
usable space than was suggested in 
1967" said Wodehouse. The 
building will include a new gym- 
nasium, a 50 meter, eight lane 
Olympic swimming pool, with one, 
three and five meter diving facilities; 
squash and handball courts, rooms 
'or boxing, wrestling and other 
lorms of exercise, showers, and ad- 
ministrative space. 

The present site of the new 
building is owned by the university, 
<h the major part being presently 
us ed as a parking lot. Construction 
may necessitate demolition of three 
buildings on Spadina Avenue which 
currently being used for 
ademic offices. The new building 

Site of future athletic facilities on Harbord Street, west of Benson Building. 

and the Benson Building will be 
combined in some manner, but "it 
will be difficult lo join them 
physically from the west side", 
added Wodehouse. 

A portion of the $6,000,000 cost 
of the building will have to be raised 
ihrough public subscription. 
Wodehouse said that member of the 
Governing Council C. Mackenzie 
King is the , provincial appointee 
charged with the raising of funds. At 
the present time $1,000,000 is 
available from the provincial 
government on the condition that 
the new complex is open to the 
premier's office. Wodehouse ex- 
plained that although King was in 
charge of fund-raising, "all of us will 
be asked to help raise money". 
Wodehouse said that the sale of 

Connaught Laboratories by the un- 
iversity "does not affect the new 
building. It only affects the un- 
iversity as a whole." 

The new facilities will be almost 
solely for the use of the university 
community. "We expect the 
building to be used to capacity, with 
some weekend use of the building on 
a Tree basis" said Wodehouse. There 
will be no extension of the facilities 
lo the surrounding community. 
"There will probably be some public 
things", said Wodehouse, "but it's 
doubtful we'd throw the doors 

"Hart House will be used to a 
greater extent by faculty, staff and 
support staff, although this requires 
amendments lo the 'tradition' of 
Harl House", asserted Wodehouse. 

However, the north wing of Hart 
House, which has been almost the 
sole centre for men's athletics and 
other recreational purposes since 
1920 is inadequate. The present gym 
is not of regulation size, the swim- 
ming pool is far below standards 
required for swimming com- 
petitions, and it doesn't provide for 

Hart House will continue to be 
used for voluntary mixed athletics 
outside the organized programs of 
(he School of Physical and Health 
Education for the Men's and 
Women's Athletic Association. 

"There will be no reinstitution of 
a first year compulsory athletics 
program", Wodehouse said, "I'm in 
favour of getting rid of any regula- 
tion which can't be supported on a 
concrete basis", he saia. IThe first 
year compulsory program was dis- 
continued because of the lack of 
facilities at Hart House. The 
women's athletic department 
dropped its equivalent regulation 
two years ago. 

The Board of Governors made the 
decision on the new athletic complex 
following several surveys and 
reports which indicated the pressing 
need for new facilities. The board 
reported that the university's indoor 
learns had lo hold their in- 
tercollegiate home games outside 
Ihe campus due to the lack of proper 

The Board of Governor's decision 
is the conclusion to a series of events 
which began in the early 1960's with 
the first User's Committee Report 
on Hart House. In 1962 the report 

indicated that the university was in 
dire need ,pf expanded athletic 

In 1969 the proposals for a new 
athletic facilities building receiveo 
lop priority. However, none of the 
money for university capital ex- 
penditure for that year was slated 
for athletics. The same year a 
feasability study on the Second 
User's Committee Report was com- 
pleted and sent to the Property 
Committee of the Board of 

The Report of the Presidential 
Advisory Committee on the Future 
Role of Hart House added further 
stimulus for the construction of the 
new complex. 

Completed in May 1971, the 
report stated in part that "... Hart 
House was built lo serve the needs of 
a community less than a quarter the 
size of the present University. Any 
realistic assessment of the future of 
the House will involve con- 
siderations of space. 

"The first area of concern is th.e 
athletic side of the house. ... At 
present the North Wing of the 
House, used as the main centre of 
the men's athletic program of the 
University, is totally inadequate for 
(his purpose. The need for new 
athletic facilities has been fully 
documented in reports of other com- 
mittees and we are confident that 
Ihe University will move with all' 
possible haste to build a new men's 
athletic complex.

Administration-run day care accepted 


The internal Affairs Committee 
of the Governing Council Monday 
recommended a proposal which left 
the running of the university's future 
day care centre almost entirely up to 
the U of T administration. 

The committee adopted a 
proposal by vice-provost Robin 
Ross thai left an "Advisory Com- 
mittee on Programmes", half com- 
posed of parents, only the power to 
run a volunteer aid programme and 
to decide on admissions. However, 
even this power of admissions has 
been limited, as the Governing 
Council has excluded anyone not 
connected to the university, and said 
admission should be on the basis of 
personal and financial need. As well, 
the committee Monday decided that 
ehildren now usingthe present Cam- 
pus Co-Op centre on Devonshire 
Place, the St. Andrew's University 
Day Nursery, the Charles St. 
(Married Students' Residence) Day 
Nursery and the Sussex centre 
should have first priority in the new 

Other than these limited powers, 
Ihe advisory committee could only 
advise the university administration 
on how to run the centre. A second 
model drawn up by Ross which 
would have let the parents of the 
users run it, subject only to Gover- 
ning Council policy, was defeated 4- 
3. In this plan, the parents of the 
children using the centre would 
have been required to pay half the 
costs of renovating and equipping 
the Devonshire building, estimated 
by a contractor at $57,000. 

Under the recommended plan, the 
university will pay $42,000 for 
renovation and the parents will have 
to foot the $ 1 5,000 equipment bill in 
addition to subsequent operating 
costs, estimated at $53,000 

Some of the users will likely be 

eligible for municipal subsidies, but 
even the university, said Ross, has 
been unable so far to determine 
what the rules regarding subsidies 
are. Bob Davis, a parent and 
member of the Campus Co-Op 
group occupying the clubhouse 
behind the Meteorology Building, 
told the committee that few children 
get subsidies, and that the process of 
obtaining them is difficult. 

The first model was accepted by 
(he Si. Andrew's nursery, who said 
in a letter to the committee that 
they believed "both models provide 
for full involvement of parents in the 
development and routine running of 
day care programs. They assumed 
"the university acts in good faith" 
and in fact were pleased that the 
proposal would relieve them of 
responsibility for "administrative 

Even committee chairman Paul 
Cadario admitted "there's a 
difference between parental in- 
volvement and control." 

The decision represents a further 
defeat for the Campus Co-Co- 
Operative Day Care group, whose 
basic principle of running day care is 
that the parents should be in com- 
plete control. However, Davis points 
out that the real battle was lost last 
week when the committee rejected 
the recommendation of a university 
day care advisory board that there 
be separate centres for each of St. 
Andrews and Campus Co-Op. The 
decision to have only one centre 
means that groups with sharply con- 
flicting philosophies of day care 
must be combined. 

Chairman Cadario cut off debate 
whenever the issue of philosophies 
came up. "I don't think we need 
concern ourselves with that," he said 
at one point after Marnie Paikin had 
asked how parents could decide 
whether to register their children 
"when they don't know how it will 
be run". 

Another occasion. Norma

but unlversfty-run. For more on day care, 

Gnndal asked the committee to 
realize they were dealing with two 
differente groups. Cadario stopped 
discussion with; "we are discussing 
policy, not specific people or 

Committee member Ian 
Morrison told Cadario that how the 
centre was to be run "was made 
an issue by those who are now using 
day care, and you are trying to 
pretend they don't exist." 

The decision means that the 
demand for places in the centre will 
probably, far exceed the 50 places 
available. Davis told the committee 
thai the eligible children from St. 
Andrew's and Campus Co-Op 
total 49. and that there are many at 
the St. Charles St. nursery eligible. 

The advisory committee on the 

centre will be composed of seven 
parents of users; one representative 
eachs from SAC, GSU, Association 
of Part-time Undergraduate 
Students (APUS), University of 
Toronto Staff Association (UTSA), 
U of T Faculty Association 
(UTFA), Internal Affairs Com- 
mittee and the labour unions on 
campus and a non-voting assessor 
from the administration. Until the 
university officially runs the centre, 
Ihe parents' representatives will be 
prolem appointments. There will be 
two each from the St. Andrew's, 
Charles St. and Campus Co-Op 
over two centres, and one from the 
Campus Co-op under two centre on 
Sussex St. 

The committee's recommenda- 
tion now goes to the Governing 

Council's Executive Committee, 
after which it must be ratified by 
the whole council. 

Cadario expects the decision to be 
passed by the council at its meeting 
September 21. 

"I think it will pass", he said, 

After that, John Wintjes of 
contracting firm Fairwin Construc- 
tion estimates it could take as long 
as three months for the necessary 
renovations to be completed. 


Residence requirements clarified 

Students can vote: Chief Electoral Officer 

OTTAWA (CUP) — University students may vote 
where they live while at school, if they consider that dwelling 
their "ordinary residence", Canada's Chief Electoral Officer 
said yesterday. 

The statement by J.M. Hamel appeared to contradict 
earlier indications that enumerators would hinder students 
attempting to register to vote in their university 

"If a student tells the enumerator his ordinary residence 
is room 105 in a certain university residence, well, that's it," 
he said. 

"We cannot ask any more from a student than we can 
from any other citizen. We don't ask any other people for 
proof of age or of citizenship. So we cant' ask for proof that 
a student is really on his own. If a student says he's on his 
own, then we'll have to accept that." 

Under the new Elections Act of 1970 students lost the 
right to be enumerated in both their parents' home 
constituencies and in their university ridings. Instead, 
parliament gave them the right to vote by proxy in their 
parents' consituency if they couldn't be there on election 

Regulations from Hamel's office directed enumerators to 
determine whether students living "away from home" were 
"on their own." If they were, they could vote in their 
university riding, but if they lived elsewhere they could be 
enumerated only at their parents' home. 

"All we are asking enumerators to do if they are in 
doubt is to ask students if they would be willing to take an 

oath about the location of their ordinary residence if 
challenged on election day," Hamel said in an interview. 

"it's a personal decision a student must make by his 
own conscience," he added. 

In directives sent to local returning officers last January 
Hamel said "enumerators should be instructed that 
whenever an occupant of a dwelling describes his occupation 
as 'student' they should determine which of the four basic 
situations applies to that person by determing the 
relationship of that person to the occupants of the dwelling 
and the nature and frequency of that person's occupancy." 

(The four situations were married, single living at 
home, single living away from home, andjingle on their 

The tone of Hamel's instructions indicated enumerators 
would be scrupulous in ensuring. that only students who were: 
financially independent of their parents would be 
enumerated in university ridings. 

But Hamel said today that students would vote in 
university ridings if they wanted to. 

I want to emphasize that we're not going to submit 
students to a means test," he said. 

Local returning officers have contacted university 
residence officials to determine "which students, if any, 
should be enumerated," according to Hamel's earlier 

Hamel explained today that the move was designed to 
save time, and that any student who was not included on the 

list provided by residence officials would meet an 
enumerator in a residence common room and get placed on 
the voters list. 

"In Edmonton this morning, we got a report that 
authorities in a university residence said that 150 students 
might claim the building as their ordinary residence, but 
now there will be as many as 700 on the list," he said. 

"So residence authorities have nothing to do with the 
result. They're just saving us the time needed to knock on 
every residence door and allowing us to allocate the 
appropriate number of enumerators." 

The Election Act itself only mentions students in its 
section on proxies. All other rulings for student voting are 
interpretations from Hamel's office. 

National New Democratic Party secretary Clifford 
Scotlon said today he is certain students can choose where 
they want to vote and is unaware of Hamel's memos 
indicating anything to the contrary. 

"I have a daughter at York and I provide support for 
her but consider her on her own. I expect she will vote 
there," he said. 

The unquestionable right to vole where the student 
pleases must be established." 

Hamel claimed such a principle violates the spirit of the 
Election Act but that students would not be prevented from 
considering their university dwelling their ordinary residence 
if they were willing to swear il on election Day.

Affairs, last week described the use of the 
War Measures Act in 1970 as "humanitarian." 

in an informal visit to The Varsity offices last 
Friday, Sharp compared Germany's recent action 
against Arab terrorists to Trudeau's handling of the 

'Critics of us must have second thoughts." 

FLQ crisis. 

"It looks as though we handled this pretty well", 
he said. The Trudeau cabinet took a hard line in 
negotiating with the FLQ when British Trade Com- 
missioner James Cross was kidnapped on October 5. 
Five days after Quebec Minister of Labour Pierre 
Laporte was kidnapped, Trudeau reactivated the War 
Measures Act, intended strictly for wartime use. 

The act curtailed the civil rights of all Canadians in 
an attempt to aid police forces in capturing the 
kidnappers. Hundreds of citizens were arrested and 
many were interned incommunicado for up to three 
weeks. Several media outlets, including The Varsity, 
were censored in the name of the act. 

Nevertheless, Sharp claimed "it was a very 
humanitarian way to handle" the crisis. "We got Cross 
off and captured the terrorists". 

He did not mention that Pierre Laporte died the 
day after the act was invoked. 

"Those who have been more critical of us must 
have second thoughts about what we did," he added. 
"Obviously we handled this one correctly." 
5 1 Asked whether he thought the threat of violence in 
<: Quebec has dissipated, Sharp responded that there has 
| been "no further trouble". Even former FLQ 
. revolutionary Pierre Vallieres has renounced violence, 
3 he pointed out. 

= Would he advocate using the War Measures Act 
1 again in a similar situation? 
"I don't know," he replied.

The Varsity 3 

Yesterday, a crew from CICA-TV, Channel 19, began filming interviews of students and faculty. 
The educational television station Is producing a show on the university for broadcast In the near, 
future. This Interview Is being taped outside Hart House, facing the Back Campus. 

Grad students 
urged to fight 

higher tuition 

The Graduate Students Union is waging a campaign against higher 
tuition fees similar to SAC's campaign for undergraduates. 

In an attempt to combat a proposed $392.50 fees hike, the executive of the 
GSU is asking its members not to pay the full portion of fees now, and to 
withold payment of $100 of the second installment of their fees. 

This year the graduate students have been hit with the same $100 fees 
raise that the undergraduates must pay. 

The GSU is recommending that the $100 be put in a trust fund to be 
administered by a trust company, and should be subtracted from the second 
term fees installment, in January. 

In addition, all graduate students studying in the summer, beginning 
this year, are being charged 9892.50 for the summer semester. Previously 
g there was no officially recognized third semester. For the summer of 1973, 
" only, the university is picking up the remainder of the fees, under the name 
of a special tuition bursary. 

T Other graduate schools met with the University of Toronto Saturday 
I- with a majority showing their support for a strike. Guelph will be taking 
| similar action, while other universities pay fees in different methods and will 
| have to find other approaches to endorse the strike. 

All graduate students have been asked to attend a meeting on October 
3, 7:30 pm at the GSU. 16 Bancroft Street to discuss the strike. Organizers 
hope to president Evans and members of the Department of Colleges and 
Universities on hand. 

Contracting out still disputed 

Service Employees, university near agreement 


The University of Toronto and the 
Service Employees International Union 
Local 504 seem to be close to agreement 
on a new contract. 

The major point of contention still left, 
according to the union, Is a confidential 
memo circulated among top ad- 
ministrators last May which hinted at con- 
siderable job losses would occur on cam- 
pus among service employees. 

A copy of the memo In The Varsity's 
possession shows that U of T 
Management-Labour Relations head John 
Parker, who is also a member of the 

Governing Council, was to have received 
it. But Parker denies ever receiving the 

At the time, it caused a great furor, and 
made the threat of a strike very real. To cut 
operating costs and save $525,000, it 
proposed layoffs, cutbacks, reduction of 
working hours, and contracting out work 
to commercial outfits, most of which are 
non-unionized. These administrative 
decisions would have been taken at the 
expense of union workers. 

The union defended their jobs by trying 
to force the university to ban contracting 
out. However, in one case, it was already 
too late. At Erindale, administrators have 

contracted out jobs to Charterways, a 
unionized bus company, because ap- 
parently tney needed new buses and did 
not have the necessary capital. 

Some of the drivers affected by the 
move, have transferred to Charterways, 
but in the process have lost their years of 
seniority accumulated with the university. 
Some have been given jobs with com- 
parable wages in other departments, and 
two have taken pay cuts amounting to 35 
cents per hour but may get substantial 
raises when the contract is settled. 

Don Barclay, chief negotiator for the 
SEIU feels he has a responsibility to the 
workers to prevent this from happening on 
a wider scale in the future and that a 

banning of contracting out must be part of 
any settlement. 

Jobs were also phased out at 
Scarborough College because busing ser- 
vice was cut down . Normal T.T.C. vehicles 
will now have to replace the major part of 
busing services for Scarborough students 
to the St. George campus. Service Union 
Employees will drive university buses 
when they run, but have been transferred 
to work on the grounds most days. None 
have lost their jobs and none will suffer 
wage cuts. 

So except for monetary Issues, which 
neither Parker or Barclay would discuss, 
progress is being made. Barclay hopes to 
conclude negotiations In two weeks. 

Quebec NDP settles rift just in 
time to begin election campaign 


internal dispute betwen the Quebec wing of the NDP 
and the federal NDP led by David Lewis, which came 
lo the surface last June, showed signs of disappearing in 
Montreal only eight hours after a Canadian general 
election was called for October 30. 

The leader of the Quebec NDP, Raymond 
Laliberte, reported this to Quebec-Presse two hours 
after the end of the party's special two day convention. 
Approximately 200 people attended the convention, 
which was called to deal with the conflict. 

The crisis was brought on for the most part by the 
concept of federalism which the Quebec NDP ad- 
vocated, in particular the distribution of power between 
Ottawa and the provinces. Disagreeement also arose 
over the more or less implicit understanding that 
Quebec will one day be independent. A third area of 
dispute revolved around the autonomy of the Quebec 
wing, and the possibility of it establishing a separate 
programme to take to the electorate. 

On this last point Raymond Laliberte was explicit: 
the convention had shown without doubt that it was up 
lu him to formulate his own electoral platform. 
However, he was aware enough of the situation to know 
that federal elections were imminent, and this probably 
determined his actions. Contrary to expectation no 
serious rupture occurred and no great debate on 
alignment shook the convention which finished two and 
a half hours later than expected. 

With regard to "independece", the official platform 
of the Quebec NDP will continue to emphasize the 
necessity for building "a new society" — somethijg 

which the national NDP doesn't object to. However, 
the latter wishes to add "and a new country" — a plank 
which tose attending the convention refused to ratify. 

On the other hand the national NDP was startled to 
see a sentence which began with the words "When 
Quebec independence occurs . . ." It wished to replace 
it with "However if the country splits into two . . ."The 
convention kept the initial wording. 

One noteworthy resolution — "It is necessary to be 
ready for independence, but it doesn't have lo be 
encouraged" — was scheduled to be discussed at a later 

As for the controversy over the division of powers 
between Ottawa and the provinces, the federal NDP 
statement was very vague. The Quebec convention 
finished discussion on an eventual reduction of federal 
spending and of Ottawa's powers in the areas not 
specifically reserved for the provinces in the con- 
stitution. However, the decision that the provinces must 
have the desired power to retain the initiative in the 
social and economic spheres was opposed by the federal 

With these exceptions, the Quebec NDP accepted 
the statements of the federal NDP, sometimes with 
minor changes. 

At the end of the convention, Raymond Laliberte 
reiterated that there were other points of disagreement 
between the Quebec NDP and the federal branch of the 
party. However, he had no opposition to the leadership 
of the federal party. The possibility for some 
disagreements was furthermore foreseen by the NDP 
federal constitution.. 

Arts and science students will be organized Into a union, If a 
conference next week agrees. Here, full-time organizer Phil Dack 
discusses the proposal outside the union's office. See page 13.

Admin plan throttles Devonshirites 

The Varsity, a member of Canadian 
University Press, was founded in 1880 
and is published by the Students' Ad- 
ministrate Council of Ihe University 
of Toronto and Is printed by Dalsoos 
Press Ltd. Opinions expressed In this 
newspaper are not necessarily those of 
the Students" Admin isirallve Council 
or the administration ol the university. 
Formal complaints about the editorial 
or business operation of (he paper may 
be addressed to the Chairman. Cam- 
pus Relations Committee, Varsity 
Board ol Directors, 91 St. George Si. 

Self-righteously congratulating itself on 
drafting this university's non-policy on 
daycare, the Governing Council's Internal 
Affairs Committee may have painted the 
final touches on one of the most sordid 
chapters in U of T's history — Its refusal 
and then begrudging acceptance of some 
form of social responsibility. 

Backed into a corner where realistically 
they could do little else than offer some 
support for daycare, the architects of the 
university's proposal have sculpted a 
document that manages to pay token 
acknowlegment to the day care principle 
while shafting the people who precipitated 
their action. 

The plan calls for university rennovation 
of the Devonshire site now occupied 
(without university consent) by the Cam- 
pus Community Co-operative Day Care 
Centre Number 2 and establishment in It 
ot a university-run day care centre with 
room for 50 children, one more than the 
total eligible children now attending Cam- 
pus Co'op 2 and St. Andrew's Day Care. 

The scheme doesn't specifically call for 
the eviction of the Devonshirites. It merely, 
in the shortsightedness that is. 
characteristic of bureaucracies, overlooks 
& or so they would like us to believe — the 
fact that the building is now occupied. 

The proposed centre, displacing the 
Devonshire centre by its formation, would 
have a 14-member advisory board com- 
posed of seven parents and seven un- 
iversity community representatives, but 
would be administered on a day-to-day 
basis by the university officials and would 
not allow the Devonshire parents to con- 
tinue their high level of involvement in 
determining what king of day care their 
their children receive. 

Many of these parents occupying 
Simcoe Hall in the spring of 1970 first 
forced the administration to take a stand 
on day care. The shock and resentment 
resulting from the first occupation of a U of 
T building and then-president Claude 
Bissels's surrender to student demands 
for use of a building for a day care centre 
never gave away. They couldn't just forget 
its existence, what with the centre located 
on nearby Sussex Street. 

Things would probably not have 
worsened terribly had not the day care 
children, sin of sins, grow somewhat old 
with age, old enough that the province's 
day care guidelines required them to be 
separated from their under-two 
playmates. This aging sickness 
precipitated the parent's request for an 
unused clubhouse the university had 
had recently acquired. 

When Simcoe Hall replayed the 1970 
game with them (months of unproductive, 
insincere meetings and discouragement 
dressed in poor excuses), the parents 
finally resorted to a replay of their 1970 
strategy — but with a difference. They 
occupied the site that supposedly was 
unavailable. Not surprlnslngly, they found 
it empty and unused. 

Still scarred from the first day care 
capitulation and fresh from the wars with 
students opposing the restrictive stack 
access policy for the Robarts Library, the 
Simcoe Hall mandarins stayed their hand. 
They neither sought the occupiers' evic- 
tion (it can be pretty brutal, they probably 
realized, to try to drag out two year-old 
children even if you do It in the early hour 
morning hours), nor legitimized their oc- 
cupancy by giving them the building's use. 
Instead, they waited, hoping the occupiers 
would tire of their struggle and leave the 
building unattended just long enough for 
the campus police stationed outside it to 
rush in and lock the parents and children 

With time running out and the incoming 
Governing Council expected to be more 
sensitive to the university's social respon- 
sibilities, the administrators needed 
another ploy. Their yentcle, similar to that 
used by governments in appointing royal

commissions, was to appoint a Day Care 
Advisory Board. 

But, even this failed as the independent 
board recommended that the first phase 
of the university's day care policy should 
be to provide required space for the 
existing day care centres serving the un- 
iversity, Campus Co-op and St. Andrew's. 

The only recourse left to the 
administration was to assemble its big 
whigs for the tight in the Governing Coun- 
cil's Internal Affairs Committee and have 
them convince the governors to ignore the 
proposals which would create a minimum 
of two day care centres and threaten to 
reward trespassing. 

They succeeded, even though 
traditional conservatives like committee 
member Gus Abols, a former SAC presi- 
dent, came out in favor of initially respon- 
ding to the Immediate needs of the ex- 
isting centres. 

Vice-provost (student services) Robin 
Ross, campus co-ordlnator Lois Reimer, 
and committee chairman Paul Cadarlo 
managed to fend off that whim, delaying 
action until a later meeting for which they 
could muster all their altrusltlc arguments 
about there being no point In dealing with 
specifics when a general, long-term policy 
was needed. 

Not surprising, that Ross and Reimer 
were the administration officials who had 
been reportedly been most unco- 
operative about the day care requests. 
And, in return, the angry, impatient 
parents had launched a counter-offensive 
to provoke a decision being made, in- 
cluding obstructing both Ross and 
Reimer's entrance to their offices on at 
least one occasion. 

As for Cadarlo, an ambitious student 
governor, the university's social respon- 
sibility has never been one of his top 
priorities, notably not so during his stint 
last year as SAC's tight-ftsted finance 
commissioner challenging most council 
grants to external groups. 

And, when four of this year's SAC 
executive wrote a confidential letter to 
Governing Council chairman C. Malim 

Harding recommending Cadario for the 
chairmanship of the Internal Affairs Com- 
mittee, they assured him that the council 
need not worry about any radical Cadario 


"In the face of strong opposition from 
certain interest groups, Paul supported a 
day-care policy advocating the provision 
of facilities to those members of the un- 
iversity community most in need. There 
would be no special consideration, he 
argued, to any group basing a claim for 
day-care on precedent, previous support, 
or unlawful occupation and intimidation 
position; he has supported It persuasively 
and in many cases he has supported It 
successfully," president Eric Mlglln, vice- 
president Ross Flowers, university com- 
missioner John Creelman, and services 
commissioner Bill Steadman wrote. 

"The whip will be cracked whenever 
there's trouble from Campus Co-op," he 
told a few friends one evening this summer. 

With this attitude from the key figures in 
the committee debate, it's not surprising 
the committee debate, it's not surprising 
that the retributive plan to deny the day 
care parents the type of day care to which 
danger themselves and their children has 
been proposed. 

His voice rising to a near pitch, 
governor Father Kelly. St. Michael's 
College president, observed, "Negotiating 
under the duress of having buildings oc- 
cupied at least reminds me of blackmail." 
He, like governor John Tory, had sought to 
have the council If not take a decision on 
unauthorized use of daycare facilities at 
least let the administration know how they 
felt about it. And, neither was very 

Their philosphy and the philosophy 
perhaps of many of the others who have 
supported not rewarding the agitation of 
the occupying parents has been one that 
will not tolerate appearing to give In to 
pressure tactics no matter whether one 
becomes convinced of the justice of the 
casue to which the tactcs are directed (not 
that Kelly or Tory would likely otherwise 
accept the co-op demands). 

The attitude represented by the 

proposed policy can at best be described 
as sincere but misguided and incorrect 
belief that authority cannot give In to 
pressure. (After all, the final composition 
of the Governing Council was affected by 
the conservative faculties' threat to close 
down the university If they didn't get their 
way. And, none of the governors seem 
quick to Insist that their council lacks 

More accurately and less generously, 
the policy is revealed as an unjust and 
unreasoning Insitence on punishing those 
who have forced the university to act 
faster than it was wont on a matter that 
had been too long fgnored. 

To play liberal political games about 
long-range policies Is not to hide the 
pettiness and Injustice of attempting to 
shoo people out one door so they can be 
reprocessed through another and shaped 
Into the mold the administration has 
ordained. , 

Pareantal/votunteer day care Is not 
necessarily for everyone. Campus Co-op 
never suggested it should be shoved 
down the throat of other members of the 
university community who preferred a less 
involved program. Similarly, run-of-the- 
mill day care should not be forced upon 
progressive parents who want to share In 
their children's upbringing and Inculcate 
different values In them. Yet, that is what 
an administration-run, parent-advised day 
care centre would be doing to the Campus 
Co-op children. i 

The Day Care Advisory Board proposal 
for university assistance to the existing 
centres and establishment of additional 
centres should be implemented. The 
Governing Council should not be content 
to let petty feuding between ad- 
ministrators and parents determine their 

Regardless of the Governing Council 
decision, the Devonshire parents have 
said they will stay put. Should the council 
or the administration act against them 
within the framework of its Inadequate 
policy members of the university com- 
munity should support Devonshire In 
resisting them.

Can't tell student governors from admin 

After a while, I got tired of moping around 
the refectory, and dropped out of school to 
find myself. That was three and a half years 
ago, and this fail I finally gave up and came 
back to UC. 

It's more depressing than ever. All the 
friends I never had in the refectory have 
graduated. Worse, I can't even bring myself' 
to sit alone there and reflect on the passing 
scene, writing letters to newspapers, because 
the riew purple and green paint job gives me a 
heada che. 

So, I thought I'd join the college elite in the 

JCR, but it looks as if they've all been 
replaced by this ugly new furniture. 

I was really happy when The Varsity finally 
came out Monday, because for a slow and 
careful reader it provides silent com- 
panionship three mornings a week. I can 
hardly wait till Here and Now gets bigger. 
Still, each page seemed longer to read, 
somehow. Funny. 

But, what I wanted to write about was the 
group portrait of the members of the Gover- 
ning Council. You know, I couldn't tell from 
the drawings which -'ere the students and 

which were the faculty or administrators. 

I think that student politics must have 
really come to a sorry state when that 
happens. Do you remember the last sentences 
in Orwell's Animal Farm? The pigs were 
having a meeting with the neighbouring 
farmers, the animals' supposed enemies, but 
the pigs and farmers were really getting along 
fine, drinking and laughing together. The pigs 
had long been wearing human clothes. The 
other animals, peering through the window, 
looked from the pigs to the humans, and from 
Ihe humans to the pigs, and found they 
couldn't tell which was which. 

That really gets me down. Thanks for 
listening to me. Myra Fflrenbeck UCI(still)

6 The Varsity . . ; 

kicking us out isn't day care answer 

The Governing Council's Internal Ailairs 
Committee has adopted a day care policy 
which will displace the Devonshire Day 
Care Centre with a university-run facility 
and will in the process deprive any of 
the Devonshire children who choose to 
attend the official centre of the experience 
of co-operative daycare. Below. The Var- 
sity reprints a letter the Campus Com- 
munity Co-operative Day Care Centre 
Number 2 sent to President Evans re- 
questing a meeting to discuss this policy. 

We are writing to you because the 
Governing Council's meeting ot August 
31st made it clear that day care is now in 
the hands of the University of Toronto 
administration. Furthermore, the kind or 
flagrant railroading that is being con- 
ducted by Robin Ross' department — 
backed by Paul , Cadario, the student 
chairman of the Internal Affairs Com- 
mittee, who seems more zealous for the 
interests of the administration than the 
administration itself — suggests that Sim- 
coe Hall is trying to engineer every last day 

care detail, if it can get away with It. 

Furthermore, your firm identification, on 
August 16th, with a policy that had been 
formed before your arrival was un- 
fortunate. Some of us had expected that 
new imagination would improve things. 

We write now with our reactions to the 
new day care policy, with our Intentions for 
the next few weeks, and with a request 
that you meet with representatives of our 
centre within this week. 

Because of a continuing 5 1 /* month 
occupation of the Meterological 
Clubhouse behind 315 Bloor St. W., the 
Governing Council has passed a policy 
supporting day care for university 
students, teachers and support staff. Of- 
ficial day care support by the Universi- 
ty of Toronto must be backed by all people 
who believe that education cannot be 
provided without the necessary services 
which make it possible. 

However, all people with their eyes 
open must examine the disgraceful terms 

in which the administration and Its sup- 
porters on the Governing Council are 
trying to bring In this policy. 


Despite the fact that this policy would 
not exist without the tenacious action and 
lobbying of the Campus Community Co- 
operative, the university Intends to break 
up this centre as a parent/volunteer- 
controlled group, kick out permanently 
the 11 community children in the centre, 
and send the 14 university-affiliated 
children off to god-knows-where while the 
building is renovated. The Sussex Centre 
and many others have been renovated 
with programs continuing. So It is clear 
that the eviction Idea Is meant simply to 
make a show of ending an embarrassing 
occupation. Notice, too. that the university 
wants to starts Its centre in the very 
building it declared was unavailable for 
day care last spring. 

Campus Community Co-operative 
Daycare Centre Number 2 Is an open 

living association ot volunteers, parents 
and children who are building — through 
joint experience — an effective approach 
to raising children together. We're not 
willing to be broken up. We are a whole 
entity deserving full recognition and 
ongoing support. 

Further, St. Andrew's Day Care Centre, 
which the University of Toronto has sup- 
ported for five years, was no longer con- 
sidered as a whole entity deserving 
ongoing support, once It was discovered 
that their lease would probably be ex- 
tended for this year. 

As a sop to these two centres, the 
administration Is suggesting that the first 
priority at the new 50-chlld day care centre 
be given to the university-affiliated 
children In the two existing centres. 

This fact raises the other main outrage 
in the plan — If eligible Campus Co-op 
and St. Andrew's parents were to accept 
this offer, the result would be that the 35 
university-affiliated St. Andrew's children 
(total enrollment 45) plus the 14 
University-affiliated Campus Co-op 
Number 2 children (total 25) would fill 49 
of the 50 places at the proposed new 
university centrel 

One extra place would be available tor , 
one new child as yet uncovered by day 
care on campusl THIS IS WHAT THE 
One additional space for children not yet 
covered, and 11 children presently ac- 
comodated kicked out! 


There Is not much doubt that this 
Governing Council, where power Is held 
by a combination of rich government ap- 
pointees (called community members!), 
university administrators, and con- 
servative professors gave In to day care 
very reluctantly. Professor Hanly of 
Philosophy, once a progressive in the 
early sixties bringing teach-ins to the 
University of Toronto, gave a speech 
against any support for day care what- 
soever. Senator Lang called day care a 
welfare matter having nothing to do with 

Campus workers are fortunate they are 
even covered by the plan. The familiar mix 
of conservative professors and rich 
businessmen tried to insist that campus 
support staff should bargain directly for 
day care. It was only when John Parker 
pointed out that only 10 per cent of the 
campus was organized into unions that 
the idea was dropped. 

Four things particularly bug these elite 
governors regarding Campus Co-op: 

it that Hart House, which operates with an 
annual subsidy of $100,000 can have 
community members, but day care cen- 
tres cannot? Anyone with a degree from 
anywhere in the world can belong to Hart 
House, whether he has affiliation with the 
University of Toronto or not. 

We have constantly made the point that 
a university that serves mostly middle and 
upper class students yet gets 80 per cent 
of its money from the average taxpayer 
has an obligation to give more knowledge 
and service back to those same taxpayers. 
We do not quarrel with campus people 
being the main focus of day care 
coverage. But, It would clearly be a 
retrograde step to drop community In- 
volvement, especially tor those already 
enrolled In campus day care centres. 

The Governing Council turned down the 
presence of community people by only 
one vote. This aspect of policy must be 

BUILDING. Perhaps the university would 
care to debate which Is more criminal — 
setting up a day care centre In an empty 
building unstated for other uses, or 
building a second and unnecessary men's 

The Varsity 7 

Wednesday, September 13, 1972 

sports centre for $6,000,000? Perhaps 
they would debate which Is more 
reprehensible: setting up a day care cen- 
tre in an empty building, or pretending to 
establish day care on campus when 
potentially only one new vacant space 
could be available to new children! 

THEIR POLICIES. Part of our role on 
behalf of hundreds of people who need 
day care on this campus was to feature the 
Issue of the coata of the service. The 
university has had to face that In Its policy. 
But. . . just to continue some of our 
sleuthing of their stated plan: 

The big wigs sounded very self- 
righteous at the Governing Council when 
they decided that the university could 
support initial subsidies but not operating 
costs. Once again: why can they support 
health and culture up to $100,000 per year 
at Hart House, but not do It for day care? 

The administration Implies that all those 
in financial need will get Metro subsidies 
so that nobody will have to pay a high fee 
who cannot afford it. Let them publish 
what Income you have to have to qualify 
for a Metro day care subsidy. If they can 
find that out, hundreds of people needing 
day care In Toronto will be Indebted to 
them. Up to this point, Metro has been 
unwilling to tell anyone In the public how 
they arrive at eligibility for subsidy. 
Something which is that much of a secret 
usually has a good reason for being so. 

Until the University of Toronto gets this 
Information to the campus, there is no 
guarantee whatsoever to the users of day 
care that their fees will be low. Campus 
Co-op fees have been kept low by the 
committment of the people Involved: co- 
ordinators working at low salaries, 50 
unpaid volunteers contributing their time 
eacn weeK, parents who can pay as 
much as they can. Guarantees must stacK 
up to this sort of committment. 

It has annoyed people whose Interests are 
so similar to the government's that Cam- 
pus Co-op Number 1 (Sussex Centre) 
disputed Canadian Mothercraft s 
monopoly on training of under-two year 
old nursery supervisors. We went to an 
Ontario government appeal board In tne 
fall of t972, and the government has aim 
to Inform ua of Ha declelon. They don 
seem to think our children are In Imminent 

^FoT Campus Co-op Number 2 
(Devonshire Centre) we anticipate no rou- 
ble in getting a license. We accept the 
Governing Council's Insistence on a 
provincial license. 


Finally there is the question of who Is to 
run a day care centre, if administrators 
want a major part In decision-making 
about the centre, they should come to the 
centre and change diapers. The proposed 
management board, with half the seats 
given to the university, puts major 
decisions In the hands of people not 
directly involved in the centre and with the 
children. Control should rest with the 
university's members involved In the cen- 
tre as volunteers and parents, a respon- 
sive type of decision-making similar to 
that being advocated In many institutions 
in our society. Let the University of Toron- 
to take a lead in trusting its students and 
workers. A University which has room for 
Innis College, Interdisciplinary Studies, 
SHOUT (Student Health Organization of U 
of T) , and the Advisory Bureau has room 
for parent/volunteer-controlled day care. 

It also seems weird to us, that while 
parents have the know-how, and the un- 
iversity has facilities and funds, the un- 
iversity proposes that It should run the day 
care centres, and the parents pick up the

Connected to Student Education —

Department of Education to be observers 
with parent approval. 


The moderates on the Internal Affairs 
Committee and on the Governing Council 
have raised some of these points and 
many others: 

• How can you set up day care policy 
without first having a complete survey of 
campus needs? 

• Why was the policy rushed through 
before fall classes recommenced? 
. Why were briefs not invited from people 
and groups who know about day care? 

• Shouldn't a new policy contain provision 
for continuing support for centres already 
established on campus? 

How Is it that offensive lobbying tactics 
are being used by the administration such 
as handing the Internal Affairs Committee 
a detailed 21-page plan "A" versus plan 
"B" outline at the beginning of a meeting 
on September 7, and pushing that com- 
mittee to decide on one of the alternatives 
in two hours? 

All important points, but so far the 
moderates have not been organized and 
not been able to make these points stick. 


But, they are not the only ones speaking 
against the official lobby. The Students' 
Administrative Council's current stand is 
significant since this year's council is 
moderate. The SAC executive recently 
recommended to Internal Affairs that the 
needs of St. Andrew's and Campus Co-op 
be dealt with bafore a general policy was 
formed. The Graduate Students' Union 
consistently supported the two groups 
and the need for a general survey. 

But, most significant of all: A Day Care 
Board appointed last May by the un- 
iversity itself recommended in August that 
St. Andrew's and Campus Co-op Number 
2 each be provided separate facilities by 
the University and that a permanent day 
care board Investigate with surveys 
developing a general policy. 

The Day Care Board was shunned and 
their report ignored by the administration 
with the help of their supporters on Inter- 
nal Affairs. This Is the same tactic that the 
administration used with the former 
President's Advisory Committee on Social 
Responsibility (set up two years ago) and 
its report on day care. Appoint a group, 
ask for reports, then shelve them If you 
don't like them. Then, preferably, shelve 
the group too. 


We are not Impressed by the earnest 
pleas of Ross and others on the Internal 
Affairs Committee about how "you've got 
to start somewhere". "We've got to start 
somewhere," said the spider, as he 
started to spin the smallest and tightest 
possible web around a bunch of delicious 

We won't allow this to happen to day 
care without a good fight, and we believe 
that we have supporters on campus who 
agree with us. 

To sum up: You should not advertise as 
new policy, even as a pilot project, what is 
little more than a stick with which to 
disperse Campus Co-op, antfpa few 
crumbs for others. 

We believe that you should Immediately 
recommend to the Internal Affairs Com- 
mittee that It prepare and administer a 
comprehensive survey of campus day 
care needs. 

We believe that you should settle with 
Campus Co-op and St. Andrew's with two 
separate and equal facilities as 
recommended by SAC, GSU, and the 
University Day Care Board. We are not 
convinced by Buildings" boss Gregory's 
statements that little space is available. 
These estimates have proved wrong In the 

We believe you should settle with 
Campus Co-op and St. Andrew's In addi- 
tion to starting your pilot project, so that at 
the very least, 50 entirely new places will 
be open on campus this fall. 

We believe you should immediately 
investigate ways of clarifying and Im- 
proving the questions of cost and 
decision-making parts in your plan. 

We believe that you must recommend 
to the Governing Council on September 
21 changes necessary In the official policy 
on the questions of the variety or kinds of 
day care offered, the position of com- 
munity people, and the question of costs 
so that giving priority to people In financial 
need is really a possibility. 

We suggest, in view of your immense 
reluctance to accept more than the 
smallest responsibility for day care, that 
you consider becoming a lobby on the 
provincial government for free universal 
day care. 


We would like to see these matters 
settled this month. 

To discuss these matters, we ask you to 
meet with representatives of our group 
this week. We do not wish to meet with any 
other members of your administration 
unless you are present. We have gone that 
road before. 

Until you do this, and we jointly make a 
satisfactory settlement, we will continue 
offering day care to 25 children in the 
Meterological Clubhouse and we will 
continue the 24-hour occupation. 

We will also seek others on campus — 
students and workers especially — to help 


8 The Varsity 

Governments plan to shift & 


In the course of the summer a 
number of graduate students were plan- 
ning to donate blood to the Red Cross as 
they registered for the year. They thought 
a bleed-in was the most dramatic way of 
expressing their feelings of being bled dry 
by thier $100 share of the $392 fee hike for 
graduate students. Undergraduates, 
whose fees are also going up more than 
$100, might have considered similar ac- 
tions. For if present trends continue, there 
won't be much left but solid stone in the 
years to come. 

It is crucial to recognize that this 
year's fee increase is only the first of a 
series designed to turn students into 
hemopheliacs in a continual bloodletting 
ritual planned by the federal and provin- 
cial governments. The intention of 
government to force more and more of 
the burden of post-secondary costs onto 
students is made abundantly clear in two 
government-sponsored reports of major 
significance — the provincial Wright and 
the federal Peltchinis Reports. 

The Wright Report, commissioned by 
the provincial government in April, 1969 
to investigate the future of post-secondary 
education in Ontario, created widespread 
panic when its. draft report was released 
last spring. The report is peppered 
throughout with a pastiche of cliches, 
sentimentalism, and expressions of high 
ideals. We read for instance' 

The paramount value which the 
commission has brought to its evaluation 
of post-secondary education is its com- 
mitment to the individual. The com- 
mission wants to emphasize the im- 
portance of the individual in education: 
the individual must be central... We must 
preserve and cherish the fragile, ex- 
quisite, special animal of this earth we call 

Similar phraseology tells us of their 
committment to an educational process 
that lasts through a whole lifetime, to 
"universal accessibility to post- 
secondary education at all ages as our 
first principle, and to an educational 
process free from the scourge of 

But as Star columnist and former 
NDP education critic Walter Pitman noted, 
they must have had a different person 
writing the actual recommendations. Veri- 
ly, what they gave with the left hand in 
their posturing on principle, they took 
away with the right hand in actual policy 
formulation. Their dedication to lifelong 
education becomes concretized in a 
recommendation that employers permit 
their workers a six-month leave of 
absence from work every five years, paid 
out of a fund based on 10 per cent 
deferment of each worker's salary) 

Their distaste for bureaucracy is 
transformed into a morass of need-test 
formulas for the individual and a govern- 
ment supervising body that would reduce 
autonomy in the university network to 
matters of administrative discretion. As a 
Treasury Board document leaked last 
January indicates, the techniques of this 
body will be blunt. Phyllis Grosskurth 
resigned from the Advisory Committee on 
University Affairs in protest against this 
Treasury Board document which was 
drawn up without consultation with CUA 
and was simply handed down to CUA with 
requests for advice on "constraint {re 
cutback) alternatives." 

A citation illustrates how they plan to 
infringe on the essence of university 
autonomy while respecting its forms: 

■A freeze on the Basic Income Unit 
value would constitute an important cost- 
saving technique since .autonomy (the 
quotes are in the text) makes It difficult for 
the Government to pinpoint areas where 
possible savings should be made. Holding 
down of grants would force (sic) the 
institutions to economize and improve 
their productivity. 

It is clear, then, that their concerns in 

regard to costs will not stop even with 
increased fees for students. On the con- 
trary, the fee hikes are part of a coherent 
attack on the norms and values currently 
attached to education in this province. 

In similar fashion, their devotion to 
that fragile animal man proves rather 
facile in the scramble for more scholar for 
the dollar. Educational investments are 
cynically placed in the marketplace where 
you pay to consume education just like 
you pay for stocks in a land company and 
where the social value of education is 
ultimately judged relative to manpower 

Meanwhile, the dedication to 
universal accessibility is translated to en- 
compass correspondance courses nd 
part-time study. The older . .open-dooP 
policy whereby a student was supported 
to his level of competence is replaced by a 
more callous equation of competence 
with ability to pay and a more conscious 
direction toward profitable occupational 
training. Both the Treasury Report and the 
Wright Report are quite explicit on both 
points. On the latter point, the Treasury 
Board makes clear its intent to "shift 
their (the universities) emphasis": 

De-emphasizing undergraduate, 
non-professional courses by reducing 
weighting would force universities either 
to reduce enrolment in these courses or 
selectively raise fees, thus putting 
pressure on for reducing enrollment. 

For the courses that are still 
available, the Wright Report suggests 
shifting of public sudsidies for operating 
costs from the institution to the individual. 
All students would be assigned 50 per 
cent of operating costs. (It is difficult to 
understand exactly how the 50 per cent 
figure was arrived at — one scholar 
suggested they subtracted the magic 
number 7 from the number on any Heinz 
ketchup bottle). Then, a sliding scale of 
grants and loans would be made available 
to each student according to both his 
parents income. A.part from enforcing 
child dependence on parental income, 
these recommendations have the added 
feature of providing free education to that 
"quartile" of the population whose pa- 
rental incomes generally remove them 
from the educational system far before 

It is a cheap gesture indeed! 
Furthermore, whllethe reduction of 
grants to institutions are specific and 
eagerly anticipated, the increase of grants 
to needy individuals are yet to be 

Unless we become too anxious in 
anticipation, the Wright Report adds a 
necessary caveat: "There does not seem 
to be any way to achieve social mobility — 
except through the combination of public 
help and individual effort." 

When it gets down to specifics, the 
Treasury f?oard once again saves us from 
undue speculation on the course charted 
by the Wright Report: 
Limiting enrollment will mainly affect 
those students entering the system who 
are the Mast employable of the 18-24 age 
group. In terms of the 1972-73 projection, 
this will reduce the freshman intake by 
16,000, and may result in a shift to part- 
time education.... 

Increasing the loan portion will 
discourage poorly motivated students on 
the one hand but It will also affect students 
from lower income groups unless a con- 
tingent repayment feature is 


Their reverence to universal- 
accessibility can be fairly easily 
measured: by their fees ye shall know 
them. Their words give little indication of 
what they are up to. 

The more recently available 
Peitchinis Report, commissioned by the 
federal government for the 1971 Federal- 

Provincial Conference is, if anything, 
more ominous than the Wright Report. It 
recommends everything from the ending 
of all grant portions of loans after second 
year to the breaking up of 'conglomerate' 
post-secondary institutions into their con- 
stituent parts to save administrative and 
teaching costs. It concludes with the 
ringing declaration of recommendation 

The general subsidization of post- 
secondary education should be ter- 
minated forthwith. To the extent that it is 
socially desirable to subsidize certain 
programs or some students, the subsidies 
should be made specific and should be 
related to the attainment of the social 
goals. When pursued as a consumer 
good, post-secondary education falls into 
the category of a luxury good. In this 
context, it is grossly inequitous to sub- 
sidize the consumption of luxuries when 
large segments of the population lack 

(Lest these reports seem to be 
outside of a national re-orientation, it is 
worth noting that the B.C. Socred govern- 
ment was preparing a similar one. The 
Worth Report in Alberta takes its stand in 
calling for an end to university expansion 
and an 11 per cent increase .in costs 
assigned to students. Its charm is cap- 
tured in such comments as "Students 
need to escape the shelter of irrespon- 
sibility that basic education presently 
provides" and "The proposed changes in 
education should allow a more rapid and 
precise adaption of schooling to the shif- 
ting demands of the labor market.") 

Together, these reports constitute a 
sharp reversal in the received wisdom of 
the past decade on the value of education. 
In the sixties the popularity of Galbraith's 
Affluent Society and the first report of the 
Economic Council of Canada made the 
concept of education as a public In- 
vestment virtual household coinage. From 
the Massey Commission to the Bladen 
Report, funding recommendations were 
based on the central importance of post- 
secondary education as a stimulator of 
Canadian cultural and economic growth. 
The Cold War helped, too. The Wright 
Report sums up the experience: 
It was definitely the use of post-secondary 
education as a social escalator and, for a 
time, as an indispensable tool in the race 
with the Russians that justified the un- 
precedented infusion of resources into

turbing whdn account is taken of the fact 
that the demand for semi-professional 
and technical workers the products of the 
technical colleges has been rising at a 
faster rate than the demand tor those with 
general university education. 
The concept of higher education as a right 
was never accepted by higher 
government officials even in the heyday of 
university expansion. Now, it will become 
a privilege with all the dressings of a 
suitable privilege — its luxury cost will 
restrict its users to the wealthy. And, it will 
be a privilege with a vengeance from 
the point of view of government 
demagogues. For, they will be able to 
entertain themselves with self-images as 
fee-hiking Robin Hoods, redressing social 
balances by removing students in lower- 
middle incomes from their wanton 
educational pursuits. 

Although some of the revisions in 
official government thinking began as 
early as 1969, an atmosphere of crisis and 
panic exudes from their documents now. 
With exclamation points galore, Peitchinis 
opens his study with statistics showing 
that enrollment had tripled and costs per 
student had doubled from 1960-61 to 

One suspects that the motive here is 
panic-creation rather than presentation of 
startling new evidence. The fact is that 
these figures were anticipated with un- 
canny accuracy as far back as 1962. 

The difference is that in 1962 people 
were trying to promote some kind of 
rational, long-term planning. Now, they 
are simply manoeuvring with statistics 
that will outrage and shock us into a 
passive rejection of previously valued 
social goals. 

All of this is done with little 
documentation. You can count on your 
thumbs the number of references which 
attempt to disprove the relationship 
between education and future manpower 
needs. There is not even an attempt to 
refute the relationships between educa- 
tion and social benefit. There is no 
attempt at a critique of the Canadian 
economy's inability to fully utilize the skills 
developed at universities. There are not. 
even projections on long-term manpower 
needs of the economy. We are merely 
jolting to a halt. Too bad for those who are 
crushed in the braking process. 

One social group will have to pick up 

the tab — the students. Where is the 
alternative source for funding the un- 
iversities? asks Peitchinis. "There is only 
one potential alternative source and that 
Is the students." 

We even have to bear the brunt of 
their liberalism. on universal accessibility. 
Reasoning that since most lower income 
students are eliminated from the school 
process far before the university stage, 
they are reversing strategies to promote 
accessibility by getting at school children 
in the early years. While their utterances 
on this level are confined to innocuous 
gestures, they raise the most visible 
barrier to accessibility tuition. Perhaps, 
they would consider tuition for high school 
academic programmes which are also too 
late to engage minds already destroyed 
by poverty. They are capable of doing 
anything to avoid fighting for accessibility 
on the fronts where the war is being 
waged. For them universal accessibility 
becomes a cruel rhetorical gesture — a 
weapon in the fight for higher tuition. 

Nowhere do they consider the poten- 
potential for alternate sources of funding 
and alternate government priorities which 
could permit a coherent attack on a class- 
biased educational system. The percen- 
tage of federal government revenues 
derived from corporations has decreased 
6.4 per cent in the last three years. The net 
provincial revenues from taxable income 
in Ontario zoomed from $151,844,000 to 
$948,000,000 between 1962-63 and 1970- 
71 . Meanwhile, corporations took a gentle 
slope from $185,718,000 to $457,000,000. 
A 70-million dollar grant to ITT highlights 
last years federal government subsidies 
to wealthy corporations. Last year's 
defence budget was $1,946,000,000 or 
600-million more than all government 
funds on education. 

Conservative Minister George Kerr 
defended the raise in fees, speaking in 
the Ontario Legislature. 
It is simply one of the ways for this 
government to raise more revenue. You 
know, you can only increase taxes on 
gasoline and park fees and licence fees 
and booze and tobacco so much without 
generally increasing taxes in certain other 
areas such as corporations, because of 
the unemployment we have at the present 
time. It was felt that there could be some 
increase in tuition fees without dis- 
couraging or making it too difficult for 
those students who wished to go to un- 
iversity, regardless of their family income. 

A number of highlights emerge from 
a consideration of government policy on 
post-secondary education. First, apart 
from the conscious attempt to reduce 
enrolement and costs by raising fees, the 
whole system is chaotic and unpiannedd. 
Apart from the lack of long-term planning, 
short-term planning is a crude juggling, 
act. Liberal critic Bullbrook asked George 
Kerr why the government was spending 
21-million dollars on a student employ- 
ment program and then exacting 23- 
million dollars in tuition. Government is 
running very fast to g o backward. 

Secondly, the scorched earth policy 
toward universities is likely to be an en- 
during one. Successive Canadian 
governments have shown a continuing 
inability to solve problems traditionally 
allocated to the public sector — par- 
ticularly housing and education. Now, 
they have given up trying and are begin- 
ning a frontal attack on those who hold 
them responsible for high levels of social 

Peitchinis rises to eloquence on this 

The interpretation given by many to the 
concept of the 'affluent society' has been 
misleading and illusory; it has resulted in 
an increase in economic and social ex- 
pectations far beyond the capacity of the 
economy to meet. It would be instructive 

to all in society, therefore, if from time to 
time we were to face the real constraints 
of scarcity. This will cause us to realize 
that inasmuch as there may be a general 
affluence, it is not possible to satisfy all 
social and economic needs at the same 
time. Even if the economy were to operate 
close to its potential capacity, it would still 
be necessary to make choices amongst 
alternative social needs. 

Since governments are unwilling to 
solve the problems of financing the public 
sector by taxing corporations , they will 
follow the same policy as in welfare 
matters — tax the lower middle class level 
incomes of stably-employed workers and 
poorly paid professionals. Students fall 
perfectly into this category. Therefore, 
they will be assigned the brunt of their 
own costs plus the costs of government 
genuflections to those less fortunate than 

The gateway to opportunity will 
become a tollgate. Students face the 
prospects of increased reliance on 
parents — an umbilical cord welded in 
gold is a useful social sanction in the 
government's war against student ex- 
perimentation with different social ideals 
and practices, as well as a degradation for 
students of our age group. 

Women will be the first to suffer. It 
should not be forgotten that it is women 
who have accounted for much of the 
percentage increase in university atten- 
dance. Any attack on increased enroll- 
ment must of necessity strike them first as 
the most vulnerable sector. And any of us 
who are responsible for our own fees will 
partake in the Wright Report's dedication 
to the work-study concept of education — 
working as waitresses, clerks, or laborers 
throughout the year (rather than just the 
summer months) to pay for our initiation" 
fee into privileged domain. 

Finally, although the governments' 
steps backward are marked by chaos, 
they are decisive. The Wright Report 
argues firmly against the concept of free 
tuition as a completion of a historical 
trend toward equalizing opportunity 
through taxation. "The commission can- 
not accept the belief that we are helpless 
victims of linear projections of history. 
Surely, if we think a social trend un- 
desirable we should be able to change it 
or, at least, to modify it." 

Governments are moving to take 
their stand against history. It is now up to 
students, who occupy a decisive sector of 
this society's economy and future, who 
are situated in the vortex of a 
government's all-out attack on the whole 
educational system, to begin to fight back. 

Numbers and action are of the 
essence. The committment of the govern- 
ment to cut back on education and, 
launch an attack on students will only be 
changed in the face of mass pressure. For 
those who delight in the apathy of the U of 
T campus, it is worth recognizing that 
apathy is an interesting and creative form 
of protest against student bureaucratic 
politics. But, it will not pay tuition fees. 

Since last spring, students have 
engaged in a number of protest activities 
raning from a graduate students strike, to 
demonstrations of 1000 in Ottawa and a 
demonstration of 1500 in Queen's Park. 
We are engaged in a long-term battle with 
federal and provincial governments on 
the rights of students and all that these 
might imply for a society geared to max- 
imizing outlets for creative expression. 
The struggle ahead promises to be a long 
one. It will even have its dull an d routine 
moments. But as the Wright Report noted, 
"our Commission was established In dif- 
ficult and turbulent times for education." It 
is up to us, the students, to determine its

Farmer union launches 

iBjl^iBflpT Ontario boycott 

OTTAWA (CUP) — Wander 
through your local supermarket 
or corner store some day and 
take a look at the variety of 
brands In the dairy products and 
salad dressing shelves. You'll find 
small Kraftco labels on almost all 
cheeses, and salad dressings. 

Kraftco Corporation has a vir- 
tual monopoly In this area of the 
food industry; it either makes the 
products or owns subsidiaries 
that do. 

The National Farmers' Union 
has taken on this monopolistic 
giant In a boycott that Is In- 
tensifying across the country as It 
enters a second year. 

The boycott was called In 
response to dairy farmers' 
demands for better prices for 
their products through a collec- 
tive bargaining agreement and 
the refusal by Kraft to discuss the 
matter with the NFU. 

The NFU is fighting to enable 
farmers to negotiate In regional 
groups or on the national level 
with marketing boards and 
processors for the prices paid on 
farm products by the marketing 
boards and corporate business. 
Farmers have often been forced 
to sell their products at below 
production cost. 

The NFU says that unless the 
present system is changed, the 
Task- Force on Agriculture's goal 
of removing two-thirds of the pre- 
sent number of farm operators 
and replacing them with cor- 
porate farms will be achieved. 

Collective bargaining Is the 
vehicle to stop rural depopulation 
and strengthen rural com- 
munities, says the farmers' 

Locals are encouraged to 
formulate policy for their area 
and the national good of all 
farmers since local decision- 
making Is an important part of 
NFU policy. 

against Kraft monopoly 

The Kraft Boycott Is Important 
to the NFU because It Is the 
means through which farmers 
may obtain collective bargaining 

In 1966 there were 22,206 dairy 
farmers in Ontario; by 1971 7,664 
of them had been squeezed out 
of business. In the fast two-and- 
a-half years, 44 Canadian co-op 
and* independent cheese fac- 
tories closed down. They handled 
a combined volume of 600 million 
pounds of Industrial milk. 

While that was happening, 
Kraft received a $250,000 
interest-free, forgiveable loan 
from the Ontario government to 
build an addition to its Ingleside 
Ontario plant. (A forgiveable loan 
does not have to be paid back.) 

The same company that was 
virtually given a quarter-of-a- 
mlllion dollars Is the largest North 
American dairy monopoly. The 
American-owned corporation has 
branch plants in more than 100 
countries— It controls 80 per cent 
of the Canadian cheese 

In 1970, Kraft moved from 
32nd to the 28th largest cor- 
poration In North America with 
sales of $2,751 ,129,000 and a net 
profit, of $82,006,000. The com- 
Dany's net orofit Increased to 
$91,300,000 in 1971. The 
president's salary was $318,000. 

Meanwhile, the farmer's share 
of the food dollar has steadily 
decreased from 57 cents In 1949 
to 37 cents in 1 970. Between 1 968 
and 1971, total farm income 
declined by $137 million or eight 
per cent, while last year alone 
food prices increased by 7.4 per 
cent. The Canadian farmer's 
average net income In 1970 was

JThe OMMB also allocates the 
amount of milk cheese factories 
may received through a quota 
system. Introduced in 1969. Each 
processor was assigned quotas 
which could be bought and sold, 
thus encouraging the corporate 
monopolies to take over sma.ll 

In Leeds County near 
-Brockville, Ontario, there were 
once 92 small plants; there are 
now two. The Plum Hollow co-op 
is one. 

Local dairy farmers bought 
Plum Hollow In 1967 and Invested 
$60,000 to make the plant a 
paying proposition. In 1970 the 
co-op paid an eight per cent 
dividend to its members. Its loca- 
tion allowed neighbouring 
farmers to ship milk to the plant 
for considerably less than If they 
shipped to the closest Kraft 

The new quota system limited 
Plum Hollow to receiving four 
million pounds of milk in 1971, 
half the amount it processed a 
year earlier. Once the quota was 
filled, farmers — who are in turn 
operating under a system that 
financially penalizes them for 
producing over their own quotas 
— are required by law to ship 
their milk elsewhere. 

The OMMB price paid to 
farmers for milk flucutuates 
greatly. Here Is how the prices 
changed in a one-year period for 
a hundred-weight of industrial 

January 1971 $3.70 
September 1971 $4.75 
February 1972 $4.48 
While the consumer was 
paying more — not less — for 
milk products, the prices farmers 
receive can change monthly. 

The NFU approached the 
Canadian Dairy Commission, the 
OWC and the OMMB with 
statistics showing dairy farmers 
are nQt paid enough for their 
produce. The figures also 
showed the corporations could 
well afford to pay farmers more 
out of the enormous profits taken 
from processing the milk. 

The-government agencies only 
offered excuses why it couldn't 
be done. 

To bring attention to their 
plight, dairy farmers who were 
also NFU members, initiated a 
picketing action at the Kraft 
Ingleside plant on July 28,1971. It 
was the culmination of seventeen 
meetings attended by some 4000 

farmers held throughout Ontario. 

The OMMB district represen- 
tative, Sarsfield O'Connor, res- 
ponded by setting up his office 
inside the plant. When the bulk 
milk truck drivers refused to 
cross the picket line, O'Connor 
attempted to coerce the drivers, 
many of whom were independent 
operators. He reminded them 
their contracts could be ter- 
minated and that under the terms 
of their contract, they were 
responsible for the milk In their 

O'Connor did this, even though 
the NFU had given the Ontario 
Milk Commission a list of small 
cheese factories willing and able 
to handle all the milk diverted 
from Kraft. Some of these plants 
had even offered to pay up to fifty 
cents per hundredweight above 
the market price. They were 
willing to pay the higher prices 
since they suffered under the 
OMMB milk quota system. 

The milk was finally diverted, 
but not to the small plants. It was 
sent to the Ault's plant at 
Winchester, Ontario. (Ault's Is 
owned by Labatfs Breweries 
which is also In the chicken and 
egg business.) 

At one of the second day's 
picketing, the OMMB announced 
a price increase of $1.15 per 
hundredweight for industlral 
milk. The farmers decided to 
remove the picket line and hold a 
mass meeting the next day. 

The following morning over 
1000 people assembled in the 
parking lot across from the Kraft 
plant for a meeting called only 19 
hours previously. Knowing the 
OMMB could change the price 
the next month, the farmers 
decided to demand collective 
bargaining rights with Kraft, 
without any government 

The decision was reached' 
realizing, the farmers contend, 
that the government agencies are 
merely vehicles through which 
corporation were assured a 
cheap supply of milk. 

On August 19. 1971, the NFU 
called for a national-wide boycott 
of all Kraft products to back the 
farmers' call for collective 
bargaining rights. 

Kraftco has refused to talk with 
the National Farmers' Union. 
However, people writing the 
president of Kraft of Canada 
receive a form letter reply. (R.J.i

Although Kraft refused to 
publicly discuss the Boycott, 
associations to which Kraft 
belongs or over which it has in- 
fluence have attacked the NFU. 

With tne help of concerned 
citizens, the NFU is now wldeing 
its boycott activities, establishing 
urban support committees 
across Canada to carry out ac- 
tions in urban areas. These 
groups are presently Involved in 
informational picketing and 
leafletting at supermarkets. 

The Moose Jaw committee 
circulated a petition which 
thousands signed, demanding 
the provincial government order 
the organizers of the 
Saskatchewan summer games 
not to purchase or use any Kraft 

The provincial minister of 
youth and culture responded by 
writing to the chairman of the 
organizing committee, asking 
him to seriously consider not 
using any Kraft products and to 
avoid purchasing Kraft products 
with the government money 
allocated to the games. The 
Saskatchewan caucus of the New 
Democratic Party has also given 
moral support to the boycott. 

Its position represents a switch 
from the provincial NDP con- 
vention last December when paid 
party organizers had members of 
the Regina City Police seize 
Boycott material from an In- 
formation table operated by 
Boycott co-ordinator Don 

By the end of this year the NFU 
hopes a solid network of urban 
support committees will be 
operating across the country. 
Once the network is established, 
co-ordinated actions against 
Kraft will take place across 

The Kraft Boycott is essentially 
a power strauggle, If it succeeds, 
some power will be taken away 
from the corporations and 
redistributed Into the hands of 
small Canadian farmers and con- 
sumers. If the Boycott fails, the 
quality of food will continue to 
deteriorate and prices will con- 
tinue to rise, with little opposition 
to corporate power. 

Since profits are the major 
consideration for the corporate 
decision-maker, Kraft will 
grudgingly press for legislative 
changes when the Boycott starts 
to hurt seriously. Because the 
laws now favor Kraft and the 
company has money to tap from 
its other subsidiaries around the* 
world, the struggle could likely 
continue for years. 

The American United Farm 
Workers' Grape Boycott required 
five years to win collective 
bargaining rights for California 
grape pickers. But the grape 
workers did win and so can

UofTgraduoteswillaftemptto form labour union 


The Graduate Students Union is 
attempting to organize U of T 
teaching assistants into a labour 

If successful, the University of 
Toronto Graduate Assistant 
Association would be able to 
bargain collectively with the ad- 
ministration on matters such as 
medical insurance, workmen's com- 
pensation and wages. The associa- 
tion would also, under certain cir- 
cumstances, have the right to strike. 

The decision to form a union was 
based on a recommendation in a 
report on graduate assistants passed 
by the GSU in May. According to 
Larry Hoffman, former GSU presi- 

dent and chief organizer of the 
campaign, a labour lawyer who was 
consulted said formation of the un- 
ion would be legal. 

The first step is to have the 
Ontario Labour Relations Board 
accept a definition of the bargaining 
unit and the association as a 
legitimate union. 

Then, if 65% of the assistants in 
the bargaining unit have joined the 
Association, for the nominal fee of 
one dollar, there should be im- 
mediate certification. Hoffman 
hopes the required number will have 
joined by Christmas. 

The university, in the person of 
Don Forster, vice-president and 
provost, was asked in the spring to 

recognize voluntarily the graduate 
assistants union. It refused, Hof- 
fman says, because it believes the 
students want to unionize only in 
order to be able to strike. This has 
been denied by the GSU. 

Graduate assistants have no 
official status in the university, 
being represented on no academic 
body, except through the GSU, 
which is also composed of non- 
teaching graduate students. 

This gives them no vehicle with 
which to collectively bargain with 
the university over their grievances. 
A union would give them such an 
instrument . 

• Graduate assistants are in, 
essence university employees. 

Spencer,Leckierunfor Board of Ed 


Bob Spencer, past Students' 
Administrative Council president, 
and Dan Leckie, his former Educa- 
tion Commissioner, are contesting 
Ward 6 Board of Education seats in 
the December 4 municipal elections. 

Spencer said the team would 
withdraw if candidates favourable to 
them and with a better chance of 
success should declare themselves. 

Leckie is organizer of the 
university's Interdisciplinary 
"Alternatives in Education" course. 

Spencer, defeated for re-election, 
in last spring's SAC elections and 
presently working with Screen Gem 
Productions, emphasized their cam- 
paign's importance would lie more 
in the impact it might make on the 
community than in the team's possi- 
ble victory at the polls. 

He wants to bring to public 
attention the "appalling" state of 
the Ward's schools and the ways in 
which they are failing both students 
and parents. Some of the money 
spent on surburban schools should 
be spent on inner city schools, he 

Leckie said the team was an 
alternative to the incumbent 
trustees. . .We don't accept the pre- 
sent status of most the trustees. 
Their relationship to the area is one 
of paternalism.

He claimed that the team has "a 
great number of ideas and thoughts 
— on how schools should be run 

Spencer said he had discovered, as 
SAC president, thai people learn to 
react to oppressive institutions and 
that he was sure they would do so at 
election time once they were aware 
of the situation. 

Ward 6 is the city's biggest 
municipal constituency. It is 
bounded by Bloor, Palmerston, 
Sherbourne Streets and the 
lakefront, and according to Spencer, 
contains two-thirds of Toronto's 
inner-city schools. 

The Leckie-Spencer team intends 
to appeal to U of T students for their 
votes. Spencer said that students — 
as former members of the system 
and as future parents — could not 
help but be concerned in this 

However, they are provided with 
neither workmen's compensation 
nor medical insurance under a un- 
iversity plan. 

• They have no say over tutorial 
size or course content. 

• There is no programme to 
show them how to teach, because the 
prevalent attitude among faculty, 
according to Hoffman, is that 
teachers are born, not made. 

• Twenty-eight percent of all 
graduate students are women yet 
only 16 percent are teaching 

Unionized, the graduate students 
could fight to change these 
situations, as well as ask for higher 

The GSU report states that 30 to 
40 per cent of the teaching done at U 
of T is done by graduate assistants. 
Hoffman says this is a conservative 
estimate and that the real percen- 
tage is closer to 50. 

The report was mailed toall faculty 
and graduate students in the spring 
and distributed again, along with a 
flyer stating the main reasons for 

unionizing, during registration. 
Membership in the association was 
also solicited at that time. 

A broad spectrum of students has 
joined the association, says Hof- 
fman, including some from 
departments such as chemical 
engineering and physics, which are

Students support Kelly's lette r 

Abortion crisis met with little reaction at SMC 


Many St. Michael's College 
students seem to feel that it was 
legitimate to include birth control 
and abortion referral information in 
the orientation information kit. 

Controversy arose when a small 
number of parents of those students 

receiving the kit complained to Prin- 
cipal John Kelly. Kelly demanded 
tht information about an anti- 
abortion counselling agency, 
Birthright, be included in the 
remaining kits. 

Father Kelly also insisted that he 
be allowed to include in the kit a 
letter explaining the college's official

position, which is against both abor- 
tion and birth control. 

Orientation organizers complied 
with both demands. 

In a random series of interviews,- 
few students were surprised by the. 
inclusion of Kelly's letter. They 
accepted the fact that he, as the 
president of a Catholic college, had 
a position to defend and a right to do 
it. No one seemed disturbed that the 
student union had met his requests.'

student, expressed the views of most

Daycare Centre thinks children

That's why they'll be holding an 
all-day teach-in tomorrow — with

The teach-in is to explain the 
centre's position on U of T's new

The policy adopted by the 
Internal Affairs Committee of the 
Governing Council, calls for less 
parental control at the centre and a

added, Father Kelly had a definite 
right to express his opinions at the 
Catholic college. He said that it was 
necessary to present both sides of an 


In contrast, Mike Brehl, a first 
year student, denounced the in- 
clusion, "I did not think it proper to 
include the information. I objected 
strongly to the abortion in- 

formation. Abortion is murder," he 
said. Such information "should not 
be included in a SMC survival kit —

Brehl added that he looked for

Arts & Science studenf union proposed 
fo co-ordinate poiiticai activities 


A union of Arts and Science 
students may be formed soon to 
coordinate student political and 
educational activities in the faculty. 

Representatives of student 
organizations in the faculty will 
meet on Saturday September 23 to 
decide whether the Arts and Science 
Student Union will be established. 
Assuming they vote for a union, 
they will then decide what form it 
will take. 

After the conference, the union 
must be ratified by three quarters of 
student councils and bodies such as 
course unions. 

The proposed new body is mainly 
the result of the SAC constitution 
adopted last year which prevents 
SAC from intervening in individual 
faculties. In previous years SAC had 
spent much of its energy organizing 
arts students. 

To fill the vacumn created in the 
faculty by this action, a group of 
students approached SAC and 
received a grant from the education 
commission to hire two full time 
staff to work over the summer. 

Phil Dack. last year's SAC vice 
president and now full time field 
worker in Arts and Science was 
hired during the summer and helped 
lay the groundwork for the

He said the conference " will have 
a great effect on the level of student 
political activity in the faculty of 
Arts and Science for the next few 


Asked about opposition to the 
union, Dack said that Michael 
Steinberg (SMC HI), a member of 
SAC's education commission, 
proposed that no union be formed 
and that its function be performed 
by a sub-committee of the education 
commission. Although some people 
support Steinberg, Dack said he 
expected that a large majority of 
representatives would support a un- 
ion in some form. 

At the conference, debate is 
expected to focus on the question of 
whether the union will operate as a 
policy making body or only an 
information and co-ordinating 
one. Dack said one proposal for 
which there is considerable support " 
entails an executive with elected 
president and vice-president with 
other members appointed by college 
councils, course unions, SAC and 
Faculty and Governing Council stu- 
dent representatives. 

He said the size of the executive 
would depend on whether the new 
union would be a strong body with 
wide ranging powers or only per- 
form a limited function. 

The budget for the new 
organization would come from the 
two dollar per capita education levy 
that is part of the SAC fees and 
would probably be used to hire three 
or four part time workers to co- 
ordinate various areas in Arts and 

Science. The total budget would be 
about $20,000. 

Dack qualified his remarks by 
saying that there are a wide variety 
of proposals expected and the 
strength of the new union depends 
not only on the decisions of the 
conference but on the enthusiasm of 
college councils and other 

When asked whether the new 
union was being set up to counter to 
SAC, Dack said that "there are 
much more important things to do." 

During the summer, an ad hoc 
steering committee was formed. A 
major conference was held at Erin- 
dale in early June with represen- 
tatives of course unions, college 
councils and faculty council 
representatives as well as arts and 
science. SAC reps. As a result of the 
conference, working groups were set 
up on course evaluations, the new 
programme review, and course un- 
ions. Work was also done with 
faculty council and orientation 

Over the summer Dack and Rick 
MacFarlane, who was hired as the 
New Program review researcher, 
worked out of the union's office in 
the second floor lounge at Sid 
Smith. Besides laying the 
groundwork for the formation of an 
arts and science union, Dack and 
other student volunteers were in- 
volved in "most major areas of 
political and educational concern to 
students in the faculty." 

The office was also a centre for 
information and counselling.

Poor freshmanturn out 
throughout university 

for orientation day fun 


Over sixty per cent of the freshmen interviewed by The Varsity did not 
attend any orientation program last week. 

However, of the 40 per cent of the students who joined in their college's 
activities, the majority said that they were satisfied with the events. 

The reasons given by students for non-involvement ranged from having 
jobs, to passionate disinterest and a lack of information. 

Brigit Braune and Anne Rebane both of Victoria College said "We got 
to know the kids at Vic and now we feel like we're a part of the university." 

For others, its significance was oh a more pratical level, "I couldn't 
have gotten around without it", explained Roger Simbert an engineering 
student. "It explained about buildings, timetables, and just how to get 

Holly Henderson (New I) enjoyed her orientation program, offering the 
opinion that ". . . the most important thing is meeting people." 

The size and complexity of the university and red tape proved to be a 
bewildering experience for Rita Romano of St. Mikes. 

"When I came to register I didn't have a clue where I was," she said 
"but now I know what I'm doing." 

Some of the activities that freshmen participated in were campus tours, 
sleep-ins with all night movies, sensitivity sessions and frisbee throws. Innis 
College freshmen spent the weekend at Innisfree farm near Delhi, Ontario 
where according to Roy Moore (Innis I), they ate and drank all night and 
just talked to each other. 

The successful programs appeared to be those which encouraged people 
oriented activities, designed to cushion the initial shock of university life in 
an atmosphere of fun and friendship. 

Reform mayoralty candidate 
to speak here tomorow 

Mayoralty candidate David 
Crombie will speak tomorrow noon 
at Convocation Hall on municipal 
politics in Toronto. 

The Ward 1 1 alderman, although 
usually considered as one of the 
reform caucus on City Council, has 
won respect from other sectors of 
the council because of his moderate 
and reasonable arguments. 

Although he normally votes 
against contentious developments 

when they threaten working class 
homes, Crombie has been chosen to 
mediate important disputes in 
Trefann Court and South of St. 
James Town. 

Crombie is the only announced 
mayoralty canadidate so far, 
although pro-development aldermen 
David Rotenberg and Tony 
O'Donahue are expected to join the 
race soon. 

Study queries value of marks 

The value of marks is being seriously questioned by a study being 
conducted at Trent University. 

In a three-year research project commencing this fall at Trent, the 
usefulness of marking as a predictor of students' future performance-is being 

In this, the first study of its kind since the mid nineteen- fifties, grade 13 
students are being admitted on criteria developed by the research group. 

The 600 students in the study at Trent were divided into six groups. To 
each group the following criteria was applied; performance on SACU 
scores, mid-term Grade 13 academic results, an in-depth questional to the 
applicant's Grade 13 teachers and personal interviews with the applicants 
themselves. The traditional criteria of admission — a summary of the 
student's achievements in grades 12 and 13, and school recommendations, 
were also included. 

The traditional university admission criteria have been cast into doubt 
by the end of provincial ly- administered grade 13 examinations, the 
subsequent flexibility of high school programs and the introduction of new 
subjects into the grade 13 curriculum. This study is an attempt to assess the 
value of the "traditional yard stick" as well as other criteria.

Aarne Kartna carries for Blues Monday night against York. Tight defensive play held both teams to low scores 

The day is fast approaching when 
U of T will not have to look all the 
way to Kingston for a football rival. 
It'll only have to look over its 
shoulder to the country club that 
calls itself a college, York Universi- 
ty. The gap between the two was 
further tightened Monday night on 

the CNE synthetic rug as the Varsi- 
ty Blues managed only a 14-7 vic- 
tory over the Yeomen. 

York football has come a long 
way in three years since the 38-2 
drubbing in 1970. No one will forget 
the Yeomen's famous first half 
flurry in last season's league en- 
counter. Monday night's third edi- 
tion could very well have been theirs 

had it not been for some bad breaks. 

The first of these came on the 
opening kickoff when Chris Sam- 
mut, too intent on running with the 
ball rather than holding on to it, 
fumbled into the hands of Charlie 
Wright to set the Blues up on the 
York 13 yard line. Varsity quarter- 
back Wayne Dunkley wasted no 
time in getting his team on the 

Rugby Blues opener Saturday 


- The U of T Rugby Blues hope to better their 1971 
record with improved consistency and more play of a 
winning nature. According to captain John Drummond 
the team had about a 50-50 win-loss record in 1971. 

The team practices each evening beginning at 5 p.m. 
(Monday to Thursday) on the back campus playing 
field. Anyone interested in playing should report to 
coaches Jim McClements, Neville Nankivell, or 
Graeme Wynn at the playing field. 

The Blues are rebuilding this year following the 
graduation of many of the 1971 team. For the coming 

UK Rugby players demonstrate the "Scrum* 

season there will be two teams, witn games on most 
weekends of the fall term. 

The rugby team(s) will play teams from RMC, 
Trent, Queens, and York for the Gilbert Turner 
Trophy. The final game is November 11. 

Rugby is an English sport which has not gained a 
considerable following around campus, but it is gaining 
increased popularity throughout North America. 

To some people rugby first resembles "a 
disorganized cross between football and soccer, with no 
padding and protection." A brief outline of the game 
should help lessen confusion. 

To begin with, a rugby team has 1 5 players who must 
play both offensive and defensive positions with no 
substitutions allowed during the entire game. Every 
player has the opportunity to run with or kick the ball, 
tackle, and score, in spite of having to play a specific 

Although the coaches teach broad strategies as well 
as individual and positional skills, they have little 
control over the actual game. Games are therefore 
much faster and more free-flowing than football, with 
numerous opportunities for individual initiative. As a 
result the play looks chaotic, but such "broken field" 
running and passing is an essential part of the game. 

Speed and skill are at least as important as size 
alone, since every player has a number of roles to play. 
However, the skills are easily learned, and anyone who 
has played some football, hockey, basketball, or soccer 
can play rugby. . 

Injuries are not a serious problem, despilethe fact tht 
neither team has padding or helmets. Tackling is more 
skilful and less traumatic than football, and blocking is 

Rugby is more complicated than the foregoing 
description. However, further details of the play is best 
explained by the coaches and captain. The first game is 
Saturday when RMC plays the Blues on the back 
playing field.

After that the game became a

throughout the first quarter, they 
could only manage a single point for 
all their labours — that on a wide

came early in the third quarter." 
After forcing the Yeomen back deep 
into their own zone, a short punt and 
a no yards infraction gave the Blues 
possession at the York 21. From 
there they advanced to the three 
yard line on runs by rookie back 
Henry Tobias and a "keeper" by 
Dunkley. Tobias took it in for the 
score, going off tackle. Sokovnin 
made the convert to put the Blues in 
front 14-0. 

Though the Varsity aerial attack 
lacked the punch it has had in the 
past, the ground game was good 
enough to carry the night for 
Murphy's squad. Running backs 
Paul Kitchen, Libert Castillo and 
Henry Tobias consistently tore up 
large strips of yardage following the 
crisp, positive blocking of the offen- 
sive line. It would appear that head 
coach Ron Murphy has found some 
able replacements for the vacancies 
created by last year's graduates. 

However, the passing attack 
couldn't get itself off the ground 
with Dunkley completing only 4 of 
13 attempts for 30 yards. York's 
pass defence was excellent — split 
— second tackling and finger-tip 
deflections kept Varsity from moun- 
ting an effective performance. 

For the York team the situation 
was the reverse. The Varsity defen- 
sive front four completely stifled the 
Yeomen's running game. None the 
less York was able to consistently 
complete screen passes and 10 — 15 

yard tosses to bail themselves out of 
trouble on second and long yardage 


Varsity demonstrated a lack of 
confidence in their defence against 
the York running attack in the 
second half when York successfully 
elected to throw for the first down 
on a second and less than two yards 
situation. Despite their ability to 
complete passes, Blues still managed 
to pick five interceptions and the 
defensive line managed to get to the 
York quarterback twice. 

Varsity's overall defense — in 
particular the front four — should 
not be overlooked. York only 
managed to pick up 43 yards run- 
ning and virtually none of this was 
made between Varsity's defensive 

Individually, Hartley Stern and 
Guido lantorno presented very im- 
pressive performances. Their heads 
— up play and fierce tackling were 
highlights of the evening. 

However, the York defensive 
crew had little to be ashamed of.- 
The defense limited a team whose 
offense averaged over 350 yards per 
game last season to 260 , and never 
let the Blues work up any momen- 
tum. The Yeomen offense came 
closer than in previous years in 
mounting anything resembling a 
sustained drive against the Blues. 

Looking ahead to Saturday and 
beyond , it is certain that the Blues 
cannot afford to make another 
lacklustre offensive showing if they 
want to get anywhere against Ot- 
tawa or Queen's.

Executive tries to push it through 

Vote on day care may not be permitted 

The contentious day care policy worked out by the 
Governing Council's Internal AfTairs Committee is not 
planned to come up for a vote at the council, according to 
committee chairman Paul Cadario and executive member 
Brian Morgan. 

Instead, it will merely be reported to the council as 
"information". The only item that will have to be voted on is 
the committee's recommendation that $42,000 be spent to 
renovate the centre. 

However, if there are objections to the report, it is 
expected that a motion of adoption will be moved. If this 
occurs, the council may then show its displeasure at the 
"implementation" of its general policy by referring it back 
to committee. 

The plan to replace the present parent-run day care 
centre on Devonshire Place with an administration-run one 
represents merely an administrative detail, according to 

The Executive Committee apparently agrees, as it has 
approved that status of the recommendations in time for it 
to be reported at next Thursday's council meeting. 

Committee member Clarice Henschel and Morgan are 
known to object to the fact that the internal affairs report is 
not planned to come up for a vote. 

Contacted last night, two other committee members, 
Ian Morrison and Norma Grindal, stated they objected to 
the procedure by which the policy is being herded through 

In fact, Grindal thought the report could not become 

"I don't see how it can be put into force," she said. "I 
don't think it would be legal unless the Governing Council 
votes and approves it." 

The status of a report classified as being for 
"information only" is that it can be accepted, refused, or 
referred back to committee. A report representing "policy", 
on the other hand, is a matter for Council to discuss and votei 

In theory, committees of the Governing Council exist to 
implement policy decisions which the council has made. And 
according to Cadario and the Internal Affairs Committee 

their report is only the administrative working out of the 
details of present day care policy. 

The report recommends that the clubhouse behind the 
old meteorological building, presently under twenty-four 
hour occupation by parents from the Campus Co-op Day- 
care Centre, be used for university-run day care centre. The 
proposed centre would give preference to children presently 
in the Campus Co-op, Married Student Residence and the 
St. Andrew's Centres, but would give management control 
to the university. 

The plan has the approval of the St. Andrew's people, 
but has been sharply opposed by the present occupants of the 
building. The Campus Co-op people believe strongly in the 
concept of parent control, and want to operate a centre run 
along more libertarian lines than traditional centres. 

To Cadario and the Internal Affairs Committee, 
however, their three-page report, which replaces one kind of 
centre with another based on a fundamentally different 
philosophy, is not a policy matter at all. Their view is shared 
by the Executive Committee.

SAC execs under fire 

Secret letter led to censure try 


A motion censuring president Eric Miglin and three 
other members of the SAC executive was defeated 15-10 at 
the council's first fall general meeting Wednesday night. 
There were 10 abstentions. 

The motion, by UC SAC rep Bob Anderson, was 
sparked by knowledge ttiat the four had written a written a 
confidential letter, on SAC stationary, to Governing Council 
Chairman C. Malin Harding recommending Student gover- 
nor Paul Cadario for the chairmanship of the Internal Affairs 
Committee of the Governing Council. 

Details of the letter, signed by Miglin, vice president 
Ross Flowers, University Commissioner John Creelman and 
Services Commissioner Bill Steadman were revealed in a 
Varsity editorial Wednesday. 

SMC SAC rep Michael Steinberg asked Miglin to 
explain to council the circumstances surrounding the letter. 
Steinberg questioned the propriety of writing the letter, 
stating it implied that the contents were SAC policy. 

Miglin replied that "the letter sent to Harding was sent 
on the part of four individuals suggesting Cadario as 
chairman. People at SAC knew that Harding was selecting 
the committee chairmen and thought it would be good to have 
a student as chairman of a committee." 

"Of the student governors we felt Mr. Cadario was most 
competent to be a chairman", he said, "We wanted to do what 
we could to get him selected. The letter was sent purely on 
behalf of four individuals." 

Steinberg retorted that "the letter would have been read 
as an official act whether you wanted it to or not." 

Anderson added "I don't feel it is proper to take a 
position that could be taken to mean council support." 

Steinberg and Anderson both pointed out that this is the 
second time Miglin, Flowers and Creelman have been caught 
sending a letter without council authorization. 

In June the three executive members hurriedly sent a 
letter to George Kerr on SAC letterhead. The letter 
questioned an earlier one written on SAC letterhead by 
Toronto Union of Students worker Paul Johnson recommen- 

ding Wynton Semple and Bob Spencer for Committee of 
University Affairs appointments. 

The letter written by Miglin, Flowers and Creelman, 
questioned the effectiveness and representivity of Semple 
and Spencer. 

In this case Miglin was instructed by the executive to 
write another letter to Kerr stating the letter was the 
individual opinion of three members and that the executive 
had not discussed the matter. As well, the letter was to regret 
that they implied that SAC questioned the effectiveness and 
representivity of Spencer and Semple. 

Creelman replied that the Cadario letter was specific in 
saying that it was not a SAC position. 

"Unless we sent the letter Mr. Cadario would not have 
been considered with as much interest and we might not have 
gotten a student governor as a committee chairman," 
Creelman said. 

The complete text of the controversial SAC four 
letter Is printed on page 7 of today's Varsity. 

Communications Commissioner Debra Lewis also said 
"it was not a good idea to keep the letter secret." She 
criticized her fellow executive members for sending the letter 
on SAC stationary, signed with their positions, without the 
approval of council. 

However engineering SAC rep Don Buchan bluntly 
countered that "it is not our business to discuss what 
anybody's position was on anything". He and some other reps 
who opposed the motion of censure seemed to regard the 
motion as a personal attack on Miglin. 

Finance Commissioner Vince D'angelo said he was "not 
overjoyed" with the action of his fellow executive members 
but did not feel it was deserving of censure. 

Education Commissioner Marty Stollar stressed that 
steps must be taken to make sure that a similar incident does 
not take place in the future. 

Steadman said that he would feel obligated to resign if 
the censure motion was passed, but defended the action by 
saying that he often wrote letters with title and letterhead. He 

didn't see this as being outside a person's right as an 

In summing up, Anderson said that a letter written by 
lour members of the executive would inevitably have more 
weight than just a personal opinion. Though the action was 
serious it did not warrant resignations, he said

New security compan y moves in 

Rochdale into receivership - Supreme Court 


Security guards from the 
Community Guardians protection 
agency replaced Rochdale College's 
own security force at four pm yester- 

The Clarkson Company Ltd., 
appointed receiver of the con- 
troversial high rise residence 
Wednesday by the Ontario Supreme 
Court, engaged the private agency. 

Four men will be employed on each 
of the three shifts. Rochdale's 
security force numbered five full 
time guards and two part time. 

Residents voiced apprehension 
about whether the new guards would 
be able to maintain adequate securi- 
ty. Rochdale's own force, they said, 
had learned to recognize and ex- 
clude undesirable elements such as 
heroin addicts, motorcycle gangs,, 
thieves and drug traffickers. 

The Rochdale community was 
unhappy with the decision to let 
Clarkson oversee its administration 
and financial affairs, Rochdale 
spokesman Bob Nasmith said at a 
press conference yesterday after- 
noon. Charges of mismanagement, 
he stated, have long concealed an ill- 
advised and punitive mortgage 

The greates+ fear was that 
Clarkson, in its attempt to make 
Rochdale "pay for itself", would 
overcrowd the building and leave no 
room for the educational facilities of 
the college. About eight percent of 
rentable space is given over to the 
community's various projects. The 
rest is tenanted at 98 per cent oc- 
cupancy, Nasmith said, and rent 
collection is about 96 percent. 

These figures are based on 
Rochdale's system of allotting fewer 
people to the suites than originally 
intended. Rochdale was designed as 
student housing, pointed out Jay 
Boldizsar, another Rochdale resi- 
dent, which is to say substandard 
housing. The Kafka suites, for in- 
stance, were to have housed three 
people in double and single rooms, 
both very small, with no kitchen 
facilities. Occupancy of these ill- 
designed suites ran about 30 per 
cent, before Rochdale installed'hot 
plates and converted the double 
rooms to singles at a slightly higher 

Nasmith admitted that Rochdale 
was partly to blame for the financial 
situation which led to receivership. 
Bui, he doubts that Clarkson can 
make Rochdale pay for itself. 

The company expects to collect 
$62,000 in monthly rents, of which 
$24,000 will go for operating ex- 
penses, $30,000 for mortgages, and 
$8,000 to paying the tax debt to the 
city. About $42,000 is presently 
collected each month. 

Even if this plan proves feasible, 
Rochdale could not sustain a possi- 
ble $12,000 increase in taxes which 
the city wants. Clarkson might be 
able to negotiate with the city on this 
point. Residents pointed out that the 
immensely profitable colonnade 
pays no taxes, because it stands on 
property owned by Victoria College. 

Rochdale's early problems such 
as tow occupancy and undesirable 
tenants stem largely from the bad 

publicity the press has given it, 
Randell said. The drug problem at 
Rochdale was exacerbated by the 
constant linking of the college's 
name with drug use. 

The community which has grown 
up at Rochdale is one drawn 
together along defensive lines, 
Nesmilh said, not more positive 
bases. In this respect, he continued, 
Rochdale could be called counter-

Passivity breeds racism 

.Now, what was it you were saying about crushing the inferior hordes 
beneath the jackboots of our invincible supermen?" 

SAC four abused their 
positions in secret letter 

The Students' Administrative 
Council decided Wednesday that con- 
fidential letters written on SAC 
stationery and signed by members of 
the executive with their titles are not 
attempts to misrepresent individual 
opinions as the opinion of council. 

-Or, that's what their decision not to 
censure four executive members who 
wrote Governing Council chairman C. 
Malin Harding advancing the cause of 
of-the-lnternal-Af fairs-Committee 

The four,— president Eric Miglin, 
vice-president Ross Flowers, un- 
iversity commissioner John 
Creelman, and services com- 
missioner Bill Steadman — glowingly 
cited Cadario's merits. 

Wednesday night, they embar- 
rassedly tried to paper over the 
incident. No, Miglin did not have a 
copy of the letter. But, as he recalled, 
the letter did not purport to represent 

the views of the council. 

By checking page seven of today's 
Varsity, readers will discover, to the 
contrary, that the letter, printed on 
SAC stationary , fails to make mention 
of the fact that it does not represent 
council policy. And, the four 
signatures make no secret of the 
individuals' executive positions. 

Well, then, why the titles? (That's if 
you accept the hypothesis that there 
was no attempt to misrepresent coun- 
cil policy.) Miglin, after accepting The 
Varsity's word that the titles were used 
(he couldn't remember, he told coun- 
cil), admitted that the four realized 
that, nonetheless, even unofficially 
their opinions would carry more 
weight than those of ordinary 

That's the point of the whole thing. 
The four, individually and collectively, 
know that their opinions will be ac- 
corded special treatment by a system 
used to respecting titles. 

Andrthe very confidential nature of 
their letter seems to belie the fact that 
indeed they were hoping their letter 
would receive such attention. 
Otherwise, why would they have 
written it? Harding hadn't solicited 
nominations from the four or from 
SAC for the position. 

Whether or not Cadario should 
have the job is not at question in this 
debate. What is in question is whether 
four student bureaucrats should have 
interfered in the selection process of 
the Governing Council on behalf of 
any one individual without soliciting 
council approval, aware, as they were, 
of the implications of their sending the 

Perhaps, the letter was confidential 
and the authors were so visibly upset 
by its leak to The Varsity, because 
they knew that not only were the very 
ethics of writing it doubtful, but also 
that they were violating the will of the 
council. In June, the executive had 

A hundred and fifty people turned 
out to protest a meeting sponsored by 
the right-wing Western Guard, dis- 
cussing whether or not Canada 
should be kept white. 

That only 1 50 people were there is a 
sorry reflection on the passivity with 
which our society accpets racism. The 
Guard, successor to the Edmund 
Burke Society, preaches a gospel of 
racism and hate, frequently using 
terrorist tactics to put their beliefs into 
action. They claim the basis of Cana- 
dian society is "western Christian 

In the past year, Toronto has been 
the site of a revival of racism along the 
lines of the Guard, the Ku Klux Klan, 
and other factional groups. The ethnic 
and political minorities persecuted 
and taunted by the racists seem to be 
alone in fighting the growth of this 

Wednesday night's meeting was the 
place to confront the issue and the 
bigots advlncing the cause of the 
Western Guard. But, when it came 
down to the crunch, only 150 
people — mainly members of ethnic 
and leftist organizations— showed up. 

Complicity of this kind in 1920's 
Germany allowed Hitler and the 
National Socialists to rise to power. 

The fight against fascism is one 
which must involve us all. The left 
cannot but be a major part of this 

Yet, those who were there did little 
enough to mobilize their members to 
turn out in force. And, two of the most 
regular demonstration attenders, the 
Young Socialist League and the Cana- 
dian Party of Labor, were notably 
absent. Such indifference cannot be 

As for the ultra-revolutionary 
Maoists, they did little to advance the 
cause by making themselves into 
pathetic martyrs as they tried to crash 
through police lines and Into the 
meeting. This mindless masochism 
must stop. All efforts in this vein 
should be redirected to stamping out 
racism and fascism. 

The like of the Western Guard will 
not go away by themselves. They will 
only continue to fester as a sore on 

implicitly repudiated sucn per- 
sonalized letter writing on SAC 
stationery by groups of the executive 
when they made Miglin write a letter 
all but recanting from a position ad- 
vanced in an earlier letter from 
Flowers, Creelman, and himself to the 
provincial government. 

Council's Wednesday decision not 
to censure the SAC four for their 
letter-writing was wrong. The ex- 
ecutive — and this was a theme of the 
Miglin ticket election campaign — 
should not, openly or secretly, be 
acting on behalf of students without 
having first made some effort to con- 
sult them. 

At the very least, council should 
reconsider this whole matter and 
adopt strict policy guidelines which 
will prevent such things from reoc- 
curring in the future.

Fiddler on the Roof is the best show In 
town. There. True, It is shmalzy and 
shticky and the orchestra is far too big, but 
still it towers over everything else at the 
first run theatres, because it is large, not 
only in budget, but in conception. The 
Jews of Anatevke may act like horses' 
asses, like fools, but they never lose their 
dignity or their love for one another. They 
receive the respect of their creators, and if 
this doesn't sound so rare, try and think "of 
a film since Murmur of the Heart where the 
director does not think he is better than 
his characters. Even Fiddler's 
student/revolutionary — the butt of fat old 
Hollywood's snidest jokes — has courage 
to match his callowness, and an innate 
sense of justice that Redford's liberal The 
Candidate knows nothing about. 

So the women are not conceived of as 
clearly and heroically as the men; so the 
music, while better then most musicals, Is 
not all that much better, largely slipping by 
on the strength of the Jewish scale; so — 
it's a musical, and doesn't pretend not to 
be, which is a kind of strength itself. When 
Fiddler was released, Pauline Kael 
described It as Jewish Hollywood's tribute 
to its grandparents. Maybe that's why they 
didn't bungle it. University Theatre, $2.50 
for the Wednesday Matinee, up to $4.00. 

The Candidate. The filmmakers are as 
devoid of social consciousness as are the 
image makers the film Is about. (The 
moment when Robert Redford "lays It on 
the line" is humourously pathetic.) But 
given that, It Is a very slick, very funny, 
entertaining movie, as well as an un- 
fortunately accurate account of how Davis, 
Trudeau and the Kennedys got where 
they are today. Uptown, $2.50. 

Slaughterhouse Five is pure Vonnegut, 
brilliant, funny, black, absurd, but un- 
moving. We can't be touched because 
there are no people in the film to touch us, 
just very clever caricatures. That's 
probably just as well, since SH5 centres 
on the bombing of Dresden. Timely. 
Towne Cinema, $2.50. 


Citizen Kane' Orson Welles (who was 
25! created, directed and superstarred In 
this extravaganza based (fibellously) on 
the life of William Randolph Hearst. (The 
working title, by the way, was American.) 
It's a great film, all right, and It changed 
the look of movies, but in 31 years not a 
frame or a line has gone stale or campy. 
This Is the movie to see, no matter what. 
Astonishing. With Joseph Cotton, Dorothy 
Comlngore, Everett Sloane, and a razor- 
sharp script by Herman J. Manklewlcz. 

The Magnificent Ambersons, Welles' 
second film, lacks the verve of Kane, 
possibly because he stays off camera. 
Still, a good antfdote to the solid, small- 

town Arcadia that Hollywood spooned out 
through the 'thirties. The studios didn't let 
him finish, so you may think the ending 
has arrived rather suddenly. You're right. 
(Hitchcock's fine Shadow of a Doubt owes 
a lot to this film, I think). With Joseph 
Cotten, Agnes Moorehead, and Tim Holt.

Report from Engine Co. 82 
(Doubleday, $6.95) is a personal 
documentary by a young New York City 
fireman, Dennis Smith. It contains, ob- 
viously a lot of lurid detail about 
fireighting! how and why fires start (or are 
set) and how touchy and perilous an 
operation it is to put them out. 

The book's extraordinary popularity 
(and the sheaf of praise-filled reviews, 
from William Buckley all the way left, it got) 
can be explained by the fact that, in- 
cidentally, it is a broader, more resonant 
documentary. It's a naive, eloquent state- 
ment of what it is to be lower-middle- 
class, to be worried, and yet to try to be a 
good citizen. Smith, as a matter of fact, is an 
authentic voice from the Middle America 
that Spiro presumes to speak for, that 
Archie travesties. 

Engine Company 82's firehouse is in the 
South Bronx, a true Marxian lumpen- 
proletariat if ever there was one. Smith 
realizes how hopeless day-to-day life 
there is, and he doesn't mind the 
countless runs to administer first aid to 
heroin ODs, or to break up street brawls. 
But he cannot come to understand or 
forgive the kids who set fire to the same 
vacant slum night after night, or the ones 
who, after calling the firetrucks, almost 
killed him by dropping a full garbage can 
six stories down at him. 

But then he didn't come by his 
compassion, his social conscience easily. 
An Irish Catholic punk, a wise-ass, he 
grew up in his own ghetto, hating dagos 
and kikes and niggers. He straightened 
himself out, sent himself to college, joined 
the department. His repugnance for 
roaches, which infest the slums and teem 
on warm furnace-room walls, stems from 
his own tenement beginnings. Roaches 
are his Proustian madeleine, bringing 
back the acute squalor of his childhood. 

Smith now lives, wife and kids, In a 
placid little upstate town. Still he comes 
back to the Bronx, and accepts the risks 
and the soul-corrosion. This Is where he 
epitomizes that middle America: he does 
have pity, he does try to understand, he 
will go a long way to help. But he has little 
use for suave mayors with discreet com- 
missions who don't, in his view, do or care 
worth a damn. He has a stern sense of 
justice, or retribution, as when he 
recommends a mandatory one-year 
dentention for kids who turn In the hun- 
dreds of thousands of false alarms every 
year. A colleague fell from a truck on Just 
such a false run, killing himself. The men 
of Engine Co. 82 painted the firebox black 
and added a plaque telling, in English and 
Spanish, of that man's death. Somebody 
turned in another alarm before the paint 
was dry, for a thrill.

4^ Students' Administrative Council 

rri Consell Admlnlstrallt des Etudiants 


~ ,. „ .. „, . June 27, 1972 

Mr. C Malim Harding, Chairman, 

Governing Council University of Toronto. 


Dear Mr. Harding, 

We understand that you will be meeting with the Executive 
Committee of the Governing Council in the near future to fix the 
membership of the standing committees of the Council and to appoint 

We wish to recommend Mr. Paul Cadario for the chairmanship of 
the proposed Internal Affairs Committee of the Governing Council. In 
presenting the recommendation, we do not support the claim, expressed 
by some, that there "must" be a "student" chairman of at least one of 
the committees. We are suggesting Paul because he has the experience, 
competence and interest required for this critical position. 

During his three years at the University of Toronto, Paul has 
served at all levels of student government. As SAC Finance 
Commissioner during the 1971-72 academic year, he took a keen 
interest in all phases of the Council's activities as well as performing 
admirably as chairman of the Finance Commission. Paul ensured that 
all material concerning the Council's financial policy was adequately 
researched and presented in a clear, unambiguous and understandable 
manner to the Council for its consideration. At no time did the financial 
deliberations of Council become bogged down with trivia and 
unnecessary detail, as Paul had left such matters to the attention of the 
SAC accounting staff. Thanks to Paul's careful preparation fo the 
estimates, debate at the annual SAC budget meeting was succinct and 
remarkably cogent. He has acquired, we feel, a well-deserved 
reputation for thoroughness, fairness and honesty in his dealings with 
the Council and with others, such as university administrators, with 
whom he came into contact. Paul insisted publicly and privately on 
the rule of reason and moderation during the recent library incidents, 
and we believe he will continue to be a forcefull advocate of reasonable 
disciplinary reform within the university. We refer to his timely 
remarks to the Senate on April 14 when he criticised the extremists who 
resort to confrontation tactics: "It is time for the university to return lo 
its rightful role of being an institution based on the conflict of ideas and 
principles, not a conflict of personalities and power." 

Paul has pressed successfully for student ombudsman services both 
within the Faculty of Engineering and again at several SAC meetings. 
On numerous occasions he has acted as intermediary for students with 
academic or other personal problems by undertaking personal research 
or, at the very least, referring the student to the proper university 
authorities. He is thorougly familiar with the ancillary services 
structure and facilities provided by the university. 

In the area of the university services, Paul has becofne involved with 
parking, the campus centre, the bookstore, day-care, and has served as 
a member of the Career Counselling and Placement Centre Board. In 
the face of strong opposition from certain interest groups, Paul 
supported a day-care policy advocating the provision of facilities to 
those members of the university community most in need. There would 
be no special consideration, he argued, to any group basing a claim for 
day-care on precedent, previous support, or unlawful occupation and 
intimidation position; he has supported it persuasively and in many 
cases he has supported it successfully. 

Paul's familiarity with the suburban campuses, in addition to his 
extensive detailed knowledge of activities on the St. George campus, 
would be invaluable in all dealings with student organizations. He has 
served on numerous committees with members of the faculty and the 
administration (most recently, the current Search' 
Committee for a new Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science and 
Engineering), and his gained wide respect for his careful preparation and 
articulate presentation of issues. The confidence and wide support 
Paul enjoys from students in the Professional Faculties have been 
evidenced by his decisive victory in the Initial Elections and articles in 
the responsible student press. He is also well-known and respected in 
the Faculty of Arts and Science, having attended many meetings of the 
Arts Faculty Council and General Committee. Many Arts and Science 
SAC reps also urged Paul to run in the recent Presidential Elections. 

We propose Paul Cadario as chairman of the Internal Affairs 
Committee because we are confident that he can effectively guide the 
committee through what will undoubtably be a varied list of aims and 
objectives. He will bring, we believe, good-natured, hard-working 
experience to -the demanding responsibilities of this position. Paul's 
confidence and desire to see the Governing Council function 
successfully and effectively in this, its very important first year of 
existence, will be a great asset to the Council and to the Internal Affairs

Residence students can 
vote at U of T: official 


Students living in a university residence south of 
Bloor St. will definitely be allowed to vote in the 
Spadina riding in the federal election Oct.30, despite 
earlier reports some would be forced to vote in their 
parents' home riding. The ruling, issued earlier this 
week by Canada's chief electoral officer and reported in 
Wednesday's Varsity has been accepted by Spadina 
riding returning officer Terrance Mott. 

In one student residence at U of T, enumerators 
were given less than one-third the number of forms they 
would need to enumerate all of students in that 

Returning for more forms, the enumerators were 
reportedly told by Mott that not all students would be 
eligible to vote in this area. 

When they insisted they needed more forms, Mott 
is reported to have said "Oh well, they can't all vote. 
It's not their permanent residence." 

However, following news of the statement by the 
chief electoral officer which suggested that enumeration 
criteria for university students would be relaxed, Mott 
denied that enumerators under his direction would 
hinder students who declared their residence home to be 
their ordinary residence. 

"We are making every endeavour to see that any 

student who wants to vote here, can vote" he said. 

Mott is responsible for enumeration of all 
university residences south of Bloor St. since they all 
fall within the Spadina riding boundaries. 

The relaxation in procedure will likely necessitate 
establishing many more polling stations on campus 
than under the previous policy. 

Students who are not enumerated at this time may 
have their names placed on the voters' list during the 
revision period October 11 to 13. Voters lists will be 
posted in each poll before then. 

The original restrictions on enumeration appear to 
have been based on a booklet for enumerators issued by 
chief electoral officer J.M. Hamel. 

The booklet interprets the residence of a single 
student as "normally, the home of his parents" and 
makes no exception for students in residence. "If he is 
away from it while attending a recognized educational 
instituion, his parent's home is still his ordinary 
residence," the booklet reads. 

However, a statement issued by Hamel this week 
suggested that students would be enumerated according 
to the same regulations which affect other electors. 

In that case, the definition of ordinary residence 
would simply be "the place where he sleeps". 

Enumeration of students in residence has been 
continuing on that basis, says Mott. 

Crombie shies away from attacking 
developers, but admits can 'shatter' areas 


Reform alderman David Crombie 
yesterday refused to take an 
aggressive stance on uncontrolled 
development which has blighted 
many parts of Toronto. 

Crombie, the only declared 
mayoralty candidate for the 
December election was speaking at a 
SAC-sponsored civic forum held at 
Convocation Hall. 

When he was childed by a student 
spectator for not vehemently 
denouncing developers, the alder- 
man replied that the solution to the 
city's planning problem entailed 
more than "a good guys and bad 
guys" analysis. 

"It would be dead easy for me to 
talk about those rotten developers," 
he mused. But under questioning 
from the audience, Crombie con- 
ceded that several multi-million 
dollar development corporations 
"had shattered a number of 
neibourhoods" in the city. 

He placed blame for the city's 
development dilemma on the official 
plan which outlines density restric- 
tions and green space requirements. 

The planning process, said the 
Ward 1 1 alderman, doesn't in- 
tegrate high-rise developments into 
long established communities. The 
solution, he added, involved 
changing the "official plan where it 
is necessary," to permit citizen par- 
ticipation in the planning process. 

Although he at one time favoured 
the banning of automobiles in the 
city core to relieve air pollution and 
congestion problems, Crombie said 
that he did not support that position 

He suggested that the number of 
cars on Toronto's roads could be 
restricted by refusing to widen 
streets and destroying communities 
lo make way for automobile routes. 
Crombie added that banning cars 
was not practical. 

The candidate deftly evaded 
questions from sociology professor 
Alan Powell who asked why he was 
running for mayor. He asserted that 
"it was important to do it now" but 
offered no other concrete reasons 

David Crombie, the only announced mayoralty candidate, says a 
"good guys and bad buys" analysis Is inadequate 

except that he possessed twenty 
years of political experience. 

Community Organization for 
1972, a coalition of civic reformers 
who are fielding several aldermanic 
candidates, came under fire from 
Crombie for stating that the mayor 
was not an important figure on 
council. (CO '72 does not intend to 
run a mayoralty candidate.) 

This position, he said, is based on 
"a total misunderstanding between 
power and influence" The mayor 
can "have tremendous influence for 
good in the city," Crombie 

When questioned further, 
Crombie revealed that his 
ideological position "is essentially a 
conservative one." He emphasized 
that he favoured "conserving" dow- 
ntown neighbourhoods, and he op- 
posed the bureaucratization of 

municipal politics. 

In an interview with The Varsity 
after the meeting, Crombie clarified 
his position on public housing. 

"We must increase the supply of 
housing and de-centralize it," he 
said. But he stressed that he was 
against large scale public housing 
developments because "it ghettos 
the poor," and "creates intimidation 
between them and government." 

He thought "the amount ol state 
intervention in people's lives is ap- 
palling," and claimed that housing 
projects could be built cheaper by 
private enterprise. 

State-controlled housing is "far 
more expensive than private housing 
and it is not as good," added the 
junior alderman from north Toron- 
to. "To be beholden to the state 
is bad."

Police protect racists froir 

Under the slogans of "Outlaw Racism" 
and "Racism Equals Fascism", 150 peo- 
ple protested a meeting Wednesday night 
of the right-wing Western Guard at the 
Latvian Hall on College Street. 

Angered by the provocative "Do We 
Need- A White Canada?" slogan, demon- 
strators came from Toronto's Black and 
^East-Asian groups, the Committee For A 
Democratic Spain, and Toronto's various 
left political organizations. 

Shortly before the meeting began, a 
scuffle broke out when the Canadian Nazi 
Party leader Martin Weiche and a 
recognized Western Guard tough Jerry 
Doyle appeared on the steps of the hall. 

After Weiche made several provocative 
gestures at the demonstrators, he was 
rushed by a number of known Maoists. 
Immediately, police with drawn billyclubs 
and several on horseback rushed to his 
defense and broke up the crowd. 

The resulting melee left injuries to both 
police and demonstrators. Twenty-eight 
people were detained and 16 arrested 
The police then pushed the remaining 
demonstrators away from the front of the 
hall when they tried to resume picketinq 
and leafletting. 

One of the leaflets distributed quoted 
the most recent Western Guard publica- 
tion as saying "believing in the equal value 
and equal potential of all races and of any 
member of a given race . . . jeopardizes 
the only true basis for man's existence in 
the universe." 

The Western Guard had selected the 
College-Bathurst area, now highly pop- 
ulated by Italian and Portuguese im- 
migrants, as the meeting site. They direct 
their mobilizing attempts at new im- 
migrants, a group ^specially high hit by 
unemployment or often relegated to poor- 
ly paid jobs when they are employed. 

After a few minutes, the demonstration 
managed to re-form further down the 
street, singing anti-facist songs and 
speaking with some of the several hun- 
dred people from the surrounding 
neighbourhood who had gathered as the 
area in front of the hall was being 
cordoned off by more than 100 police. 

One onlooker asked why the peaceful 
pickets were prevented by the im- 
pregnable wall of police from marching in 
front of the hall. He said that demon- 
strating should be allowed if Canada were 
really a free country and saw the meeting 
inside as a facist threat to his rights as an 

Meanwhife, inside the near-empty hall, 
a long-haired, young man dressed in a 
military-type shirt paced nervously about 
swinging a baseball bat. An old man 
poked gleefully at the torn communist flag 
which had been taken from some of the 
demonstrators, while a younger one 
proudly exhibited the 2-by-4 which had~ 
been its base. 

A suave young woman set up a book 
table featuring Race and Reality The 
Biology of the Race Problem, and None 

Dare Call it Conspiracy titles. 

The meeting began with the initial 25 
present standing to the Canadian national 
anthem. The Canadian flag was flanked 
by two black, white, and green banners — 
the Western Guard symbol recently evi- 
dent on "White Canada" and "Abortion is 
murder" billboards. 

Western Guard chairman Don Andrews 
began his remarks by boasting proudly 
that the organization "stands on guard for 
Canada' for^ the Canada of a European 
heritage ... not a guard for Nairobi or 
Kampala, but on guard for Europe." 

Joe Genovese, another Guard, member 
stated that Western Christian civilization 
had created all the worthwhile 
achievements in science, technology, and 
medicine, and denied that any like 
achievements had occurred in Africa. 
Questioned about the existence of early 
advanced West African kingdoms and 
Egypt, he reduced the statement to cover 
only "primitive" Africa. 

While the Western Guard believes in 
Christian ideals, Andrews said it need not 
believe everything that is contained in the 
Bible, especially that which might stress 
the Jews as "chosen people". He noted 
that in the real world "we don't practice it 
^Christianity) because we have to com- 
pete" and "survival is what concerns us." 

Opponents say that an example of 
Western Guard survival tactics is the 
severe beating of an'old man who sells 
books at the Great Wall Book Store a 

supplier of Chinese C 
and other material.

sophisticated on the subject of equality 
said vehemently, "An architect can wash

view that "Canada is getting not just pink,

World War Two was not Hitler. He con- 
tended that "Hitler was a guy who didn't

had started with an assault on the Com-

In an attempt to dramatize the 
need for university-sponsored day 
care, the Campus Community 
Cooperative Day Care group yester- 
day set up a demonstration day care 
centre in [he Sid Smith foyer. 

The group, composed of about six 
adults and ten toddlers ate lunches 
of boiled egg and cheese sandwiches 
played games and rode tricycles in 
the train-stalion-like foyer. 

The co-op group has spent the 
entire summer trying to elicit some 
response from the university ad- 
ministration, after occupying an un- 
used building last April. 

The Governing Council last week 
voted to support a day care centre 
which would exclude children whose 
parents were not directly connected 
to the university. A committee

tre be set up to accommodate the 
co-op group and three other day 


Seagrams' Toronto office doesn't 
know of the brief, but a secretary 
said, "Everybody asks us for 
money — it's pathetic." 

Scarborough's present library is 
on the fifth floor of the building, in 
an area designated for office space. 
This system was only supposed to 
last until 1968, but it has become 
clear, Onley says, that there won't 
be a new library for quite a while 
unless there is at least some private 

There are not sufficient

Half the books in the present 
collection are in storage, and 
someone wanting to take out a book 
must wait a day, Onley says. Prin- 
cipal Campbell indicated in an in- 
terview with The Varsity that he 

doesn't see the need for a new 
library as terribly urgent. He seems 
content to wait until Scarborough's 
third building, in which a library is 
planned, is finished. 

Onley estimates the new library 
outlined in the brief would cost 
around $10 million, and believes it is 
possible that Seagrams may donate 
the entire amount. 

"The tax write-off would be 
phenomenal," he said. 

Seagrams was picked, says Onley, 
because they are Canadian, have 
large assets, and have a reputation 
for funding many projects. Recent- 
ly, Seagrams offered to build a 
football stadium for McGill.

THE ■ 

Corporate lax concessions do not 
help Canada's unemployment 
problem. New Democratic Party 
leader David Lewis charged 

He continued his series of attacks 
against "corporate welfare bums." in 
an interview with Liberal MP 
Robert Kaplan (Don Valley) at Ho- 
ly Trinity Church's Noon on the 

Lewis added that corporate tax 
concessions are not justifiable for 
the "financial risks", which cor- 
porations claim they are constantly 

He pointed to farmers as one 
sector of society which takes more 
risks than corporations, yet obtains 
far fewer concessions. 

Asked whether corporations 
should pay the same tax rate as 
individuals, Lewis answered that it 
was not the tax rate of corporations 
that he wanted to change, but the 
huge tax concessions that often 
resulted in many corporations 
paying, essentially, no taxes at all. 

Lewis pointed out that since the 
economy is in private hands the 
people of Canada are at the mercy 
of corporations. He maintained that 
he was not against the private sec- 
tor, but merely objected to them 
having extra priveleges. Cor- 
porations, he said, simply do not 
need the extra tax concessions. 

When asked by Kaplan why he 
was not satisfied by the tax reforms 
recently passed, Lewis replied that 
these new laws did not apply to 
corporations until 1976 and that the

corporation were wasting no time in 
taking advantage of the delay. 

Lewis said that the "corporate- 
welfare-bums-issue" was also tied 
up with the very important question 
of foreign ownership, by making it 
easier for foreign corporations to 
extend^ their control. 

The government bias towards 
corporations was also reflected in 
the favouritism it shows towards 
developers, at the expense of 
meeting real housing needs, Lewis 

On the question of un- 
employment, Lewis rejected the 
idea of a shorter work week as a 
temporary solution and suggested 
instead that income tax be reduced 
for lower income people. He added 
that projects should be started to 
satisfy people's real needs — homes 
and pollution control. Lewis did not 
agree with the suggestion that these 
too were temporary solutions. 

The NDP leader criticized those 
women pressing the abortion issue - 
by saying that it was divisive. He 
said, however, that he objected to 
the fact that women and doctors 
were criminals under present laws, 
but was unwilling to talk further on 
the subject. 

Lewis' support of the working 
class had its limits in the B.C. 
dockworkers strike which was 
recently ended by the government 
with NDP support. Lewis justified 
his position by claiming that the 
government was not criticized by the 
dockworkers themselves. He also 
claimed that the grain industry and 
the future of the wheat farmer 
depended on the termination of the 

"The interest of Canada as a 
whole must first be taken into ac- 
count," he said.

bigger financial burden on student- 
parents, Davis sees the real problem 
as the difficulty the parents face in 
obtaining provicial subsidies to 
alleviate financial need. The govern- 
ment provides funds for. parents who 
can't pay day care costs but, ac- 
cording to Davis, last year's funds 
ran out quickly, and latecomers 
found it very difficult, if not im- 
possible, to arrange a subsidy. 

The decision as to who is eligible 
for subsidies rests in the hands of the 
Metro Social Services Dept., who 
use a standard means test. It is not 
clear, however, how the information 
is used. 

The City decides what constitutes 
financial need in a family where 
both husband and wife are working 
or studying. 

The social services department 
told The Varsity that it will provide 
funds in a case where a mother is 
studying lo qualify for employment 
to add to the family income, but will 
not subsidize the family if the 
mother is studying without intentions 

of employment. 
In contrast to the U of T 

situation, York University day care 
people seem to be making a smooth 
transition from a centre run and 
controlled by parents to a larger, 
parent-controlled centre with no rise 
in the $55 fee. 

Co-ordinator Maria de Wit says 

York will subsidize the administra- 
tion costs arising from the larger 
number of children being cared for. 

The York centre sill handle 150 
children, while the proposed U of T 
centre sill take in only 50. 

Compunding the difficulty for 

parents is the lack of financially 
practical alternatives to day care. 

Private babysitting, while it can 
cost as low as $15 a week, usually 
runs to $25, bringing the monthly 
charge to a par with commercial day 
care centres. 

York University subsidizes Its day care centre's operating costs, but U of T won't

Everybody wants committees 

Priorities SAC meeting drones on forever 


The year's priorities were the 
chief order of business as SAC 
began another year of marathon 
meetings Wednesday night. 

The final area of discussion 
proved the most contentious. 

Services Commissioner Bill 
Steadman stated that the decision 
by the Governing Council Internal 
Affairs Committee on daycare made 
redundant his intended proposal to 
have SAC investigate the day care 
problem and present its views to the 
Governing Council. The decision 
has already been made, he said. 

However, SMC rep Michael 
Steinberg said that SAC should still 
spend some energy to investigate 
what the university has done in 
regard to social responsibility and 
parental control. 

He called Internal Affair's day 
care policy "shitty". 

hducation commissioner Marty 
Stollar said SAC should decide 
whether the Governing Council 
answers are correct, and press its 
demands if there is disagreement. 

Paul Cadario, chairman of the 
committee that passed the day care 
recommendations, said he supported 
its recommendations. There will be 
a review of the policy sometime in 
the future. 

Council decided to set up a 
committee to study the day care 

Steadman said the chief 
priority in his area Is to push the 
university into expanding student 
services, as well as setting up more 
student-initiated and student-run 
services. Council accepted his 
recommendation that a five person 
committee be set up to study present 
student services and report back on 
possible additional areas of concern. 

President Eric Miglin said' that 
in the area of financing of post- 
secondary education, there are two - 
major concerns' "ensuring that 
there is a continuing year to year 
expertise in the field, and increasing 
student awareness of the problems 
involved. We don't have much hope 
of succeeding if students don't know 
about financing." He added that 

despite SAC's efforts to talk to 
students about the fee increases and 
other issues involved, the problem of 
communication was still a major 
one. Miglin recommended that a 
committee be set up to delineate the 
areas of post-secondary financing in 
which SAC should concentrate its 
research and study activities. 

, University Commissioner John 
Creelman said that although dis- 
cipline had been around as an issue 
for four years, "we now have a 
chance of getting a liberal, in- 
telligent policy through the Gover- 
ning Council, hopefully by Christ- 
mas." He recommended that a sub- 
committee be set up to draft a SAC 
position paper on discipline to sub- 
mit to the internal affairs committee 
of Governing Council. Steinberg 
recommended SAC set up a com- 
mittee to deal with the library ques- 
tion with the warning that "if we 
don't do something about the 
library, thre will be a lot of other 
people who will." The committee 
would research all arguments 
presented and recommend further 

SAC action and tactics. 

Stollar echoed Steinberg's 
sentiments, stating that "nothing is 
being done" on the library. "It 
hasn't been discussed". 

Vice presidente John Helliwell 
said that in the area of university 
planning SAC needed to decide 
what the future of the one dollar 
campus centre levy on all students 
would be, possibly with a new 

He claimed that every piece of 
research work has shown the cam- 
pus centre is a bad idea. 

Helliwell joined the rest in 
recommending yet another com- 
mittee be set up to do background 
work on student involvement in all 
types of university planning. 

Unexpectedly near the end of 
the meeting, Marty Stollar resigned 
as Education Commissioner. Stollar 
said that he was resigning for per- 
sonal reasons that had nothing to do 
with SAC. 

The meeting also gave the 
Varsity Board Constitution second 
and final reading. This significantly

pected to be more comprehensive 

and beneficial than the superficial 
examination made by a presidential 
advisory committee a few years ago. 

SAC vice-president Ross Flowers,

to improve the services. The 
nutritive value, price, quality and 
variety of food served would be 
studied by the Faculty of Food 
Sciences, which SAC approached

U of T Sailing Club meets Tuesday 


The U of T Sailing Club's Fall 
schedule begins next Tuesday 
(SepL.I9) with a general meeting at 
Hart House. Racing sailors, 
recreational sailors and beginners 
are all welcome to attend. 

Trials for the sailing team will 
be announced at that time. Last year 
the team competed in five regattas. 

winning the OUAA championship, 
and the Ontario Spring Regatta. 
The ultimate goal is the Canadian 
Championship, which takes place 
annually on Thanksgiving weekend 
at Kingston. 

The Kingston event was won by 
the University of British Columbia 
last year, but Toronto stands an 
excellent chance this year. Several 
top sailors have already expressed 

interest. The winning school will 
likely sail in the North American 
Intercollegiate Championship next 

Later in the season Wayne 
State University in Detroit is the 
focal point for competition for the 
Hudson International Trophy. The 

top Canadian team from this 
competition automatically qualifies 
for one of the premier intercollegiate 
regattas the Tim me Angsten, which 
rounds out the season early in 

The Ontario Spring 
Championship was a new event in- 

itialed by the U of T Sailing Club 
this past Spring. It was part of a 
massive revision of the sailing 
program which has been rather 
limited in the past. 

Further information concerning 
the sailing club wiil be available at 
next week's meeting. 

Injury clinic at Benson 
to begin September 79 


Athletic injuries lurk wherever sports events take place. All too often, 
though, team-mates, managers, coaches and officials are not familar with 
proper treatment procedures. In order to remedy the situation, the U of T 
Women's Athletic Association is hosting its first Athletic Injury Clinic. 

The first course begins September 29 and continues through to October 
5. Sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6 to 8 
p.m. in the third floor study room of the Benson Building. The instructors 
will be members of the St. John Ambulance Corps and Ed Knowlekowski, 
head trainer at York University. 

Knowlekowski is skilled in properly treating all athletic injuries. He 
does not confine his talents to disabled football stars and will help to explain 
women's injuries in such sports as gymnastics, volleyball and basketball. 

A second course will be given starting the week of October 23 and 
running for six weeks, one night a week. This session will be under the 
auspices of Sharon Wilson, instructor and basketball coach at the Benson 

The clinic has been organized in-order to enable women to recognize the 
seriousness of an athletic injury and, at the same time, to diagnose and treat 
the problem. 

The programme will include basic first aid, the treatment of skin 
splints, blisters and charley horses, methods of taping injuries and possible 
procedures for rehabilitation. The clinic will be largely practical — more 
doing than listening. 

Both of these clinics are open to intercollegiate and interfaculty 
coaches and managers, nurses and physiotherapists as well as anyone else 
interested in athletic injuries. AH women who wish to find out more about 
these courses should contact Sharon Wilson in the Benson Bldg. as soon as 
possible. Act now. First course enrollment will be limited to 15-20 women. 

The U of T sailing club needs able-bodied individuals In order to retain their OUAA championship.

World Champ Fittipaldi at Mosport 


* World championship Formula l 
Driver Emerson Fittipaldi (Brazil) 
will lead the field of contenders at 
Mosport on September 24 when the 
Grand Prix of Canada is run. 
However, at this stage of the 

competition the final two races 
(Mosport and Watkins Glen, N.Y. 
on October 8) will be somewhat 
'anliclimactic. Fittipaldi has already 
shown himself to be a racing "hero" 
in I972. 

At a reception in his honour at 
Labatt's Toronto plant Wednesday

Emerson Fittipaldi to race In Grand Prix September 24. 

You don t have to be Evonne Goolagong to play tennis. Participate 
In the Women's Interfaculty Tennis Tournament. The deadline lor 
entry is September 21 at the Benson Building. 

evening Fittipaldi said that motor 
racing was on the increase in his 
native Brazil. There are going to be 
some circuits built 1 ', he said, "and 
there is a new circuit at Brasilia, ihe 
capital". Brazil receives Formula 1 
racing by Telstar full-time from 
Europe. This is very important for 
the future of motor racing in 

Fittipaldi also mentioned that 
"The government subsidizes sport. 
The president is a great motor sport 
enthusiast; he sends me a telegram 
after every race", he added. 

(One wonders if a Grand Prix race 
will be scheduled soon for Brazil. At 
this lime the only Grand Prix race 
to take place in Latin America is in 

Commenting on the development 
of the auto industry in Brazil Fit- 
tipaldi said that "General Motors is 
involved in Brazil" and 
"Volkswagen is turning out 1,800 
cars per day Tor the market". 
"There is a tax on imported cars", 
he added "and prices are quite ex- 
horbitant. Nearly 50% of the price 
of imported cars is tax," he said. 

Fittipaldi confirmed that- 
"General Motors supports motor 
racing (financially), but doesn't of- 
ficially race," Some of the major 
backers are the petroleum com- 
panies — Esso, Texaco, and Shell" 
as well as such native industries as 
"Banco do Commercio e Industria 
de Sao Paulo", he added. 

Speaking of the stability of Brazil, 
Fittipaldi said that the "political 
situation is much better since 1964. 
(The liberal-leaning but unstable 
Goulart government was deposed 
thaPyear by a right-wing coup.) 

"The new Brazilian government is 
promoting new schools and helping 
the poorer people", Fittipaldi said. 
"Before 1964 Brazil was going 
downhill economically, but that's 
why we had the revolution", he 

"There are no restrictions on 
what people try to do internally in 
Brazil", he said, but admitted that 
"there is some trouble with the press 
because of communist infiltration". 

Fittipaldi added tht the coup in 
1964 has not "affected me personal- 

ly or any of my family or friends." 
He affirmed that he was not directly 
restricted by the government in 
anything he might say outside the 
country, and expressed confidence in 
the new Brazil. "I'm only investing 
in Brazil now", he said. 

• ■ • • 

With five Grand Prix champion 
wins to his credit so far this year 
Fittipaldi has a long-shot chance at 
equalling the record for the most 
number of wins in a single year. 
(The late Jim Clark won 7 in 1963.) 

Fittipaldi clinched the 1972 world 
title last weekend with a win at 
Monza (the Italian Grand Prix). He 
had previously won Grand Prix 
races in Spain, Belgium, Britain and 
Austria. His present total of 61 
pojnts is more than double that of 
Jackie Stewart (27), last year's 
world champion. Fitttpaldi's closest 
rival has been Denis Hulme (31 
points at present).

At 25 Fittipaldi is the youngest 
driver ever to win the World Cham- 
pionship in Formula 1. When asked 
Wednesday evening what con- 
tributed more to a Grand Prix win, 
the car or the driver, Fittipaldi 
tactfully replied that it was "about 

Fittipaldi, who has only been 
racing in Formula 1 competition 
since 1967 appeared slightly 
overawed at the reception held in his 
honour Wednesday evening. He 
gave the impression of a successful 
man who had been quickly pushed 
before the world spotlight — a 
situation which he may or may not 
have completely enjoyed. 

However, his relaxed manner 
indicated that he was not entirely 
averse to large gatherings of ad- 
mirers. His tactful and patient 
handling of most of the typical 
personal questions from the Toronto 
and surrounding area press was 
commendably handled.- 

Fittipaldi said that "Nurgurbring 
(where the German Grand Prix is 
held) is my favorite circuit". It is the 
most challenging circuit for a driver, 
with 1 25 different corners. To 
memorize all the breaking points is 
very difficult." 

Asked abouL track safety at 

Nurgurbring - Fittipaldi replied that 
it "is very safe for the moment" 
because of added safety features, 
"but the course is essentially the 
same circuit that it was a year ago. " 
(The German circuit has been 
criticized in the past by for its poor 
handling of safely precautions, most 
notably by Jackie Stewart.) 

Fittipaldi said that "Jackie 
Stewart is the best driver in racing 
today". He echoed Stewart when he 
said that "when you are in motor 
racing you have to switch off the 
outside — it's like being in a 
different world." 

"I have an exclusive contract with 
Lotus; therefore I won't race at 
Indy," Fittipaldi said. He added 
that "it is difficult to say whether or 
not Indy is harder to race at than a 
Grand Prix circuit. I just watch 
films on television. I have spoken to a 
lot of people racing at Indy. You 
need a lot of concentration on the 
oval track and it's hard to be 

Fiuipaldi said that his first 
experience in motor racing on a 
major scale had been in "Group 1, in 
Brazil in 1965", and he drove his 
first Formula 1 car only two years 
later. However, his family has had 
racing "in its blood". 

The world champion's mother 
raced in the I950's and won a 24- 
hour race for production cars. 
Emerson's brother, Wilson (28), 
drives a Brabham on the Formula 1 

Fittipaldi said tht his "father was 
a motoring journalist for many 
years. Father took me to meetings 
and I developed it from there", he 
added. The senior Fittipaldi has 
been broadcasting racing in and to 
Brazil for over a quarter-century. 

Fittipaldi's father will be at 
Mosport, September 24, when his 
younger son makes his second 
appearance at the Canadian circuit. 
(In last year's Canadian Grand Prix 
Fittipaldi finished seventh). 

The race at Mosport is 11 in a, 
series of 12 World Championship 
races. The final race takes place at 
Watkins Glen, N.Y., on October 8. 
Fittipaldi said, "We're going to do it 
one second quicker than Jackie 

AOSC flights fo Moscow 


Through its contacts with student unions in the 
USSR the Association of Student Councils arranged a 
charter flight and tickets for 180 people for the 
remaining games of the Canada-Russia hockey series in 

These contacts result from the International 
Association of Student Unions— both the Russian 
Student Travel Bureau and AOSC are members. 
According to Rod Hurd, Director of AOSC, the tickets 
were acquired "by the simple use of a Telex to reach 
our Russian counterparts". 

While students were given preference for the tickets, 
lack of student response caused AOSC to open sales to 
the public on a first come, first served basis. Hurd said 
the price for the flight is S649, equal to a similar charter 
package under Hockey Canada auspices. 

He admitted that a few students have received a 
lower price, but stated that there hasn't been a policy to 
give special student discounts. Hurd said he doesn't 
know the details of how the lower rates were arranged 
'and voiced a fear that knowledge of them might raise a 
clamour from those who paid the regular price. 

The arrangement for a chauer flight through Finlay 
Travel Flight Limited enabled AOSC to decrease an 
original cost or$730 which had been set for group fares. 

The project was set up in late August when tickets 
arranged by Hockey Canada to distribute to the 
Canau.. -h|i c through travel agents were sold out 

and a large waiting list developed. AOSC has arranged 
charter flights for students for three years, but this 
flight is considered unique, since it was done in short 
lime and includes the tickets. 

"Hurd said AOSC is "proud to get seats where 
others couldn't", bypassing official channels. 

Between one-third and one-half of the tickets sold 
went to students. The Russian group showed no 
opposition to the sales to non-students. These were 
opened to the public only after AOSC had written to 
organizations in contact with students "such as Hart 
House and the athletic department at Ihe U of T", said 
Hurd. He accounted for the low student response by 
referring to the high costs and the inconvenient time of 
the year. 

1 ncluded in the arrangements are r rn airfare from 
Toronto to Moscow, accomodation at tourist class 
hotels and tickets to all games and excursions A total 
of nine days will be spent in the USSR, covering the 
lime of the games, Sept. 22, 24, 26 and 28 

Though visas have not yet been received, Hurd said 
there have been no problems in arranging for them. 

Profits made by AOSC will go to pay for a tour of 
Canada for Russian students. This will repay an old

Ottawa ruling rejected, 
enumeration botch-up 
at Devonshire residence 

Action against fee 
hikes spreads 
at Ottawa 

OTTAWA (CUP) — Most students at Carleton University appeared 
to be withholding their second installment of tuition fees this week, 
while University of Ottawa student representatives urged their students 
lo follow suit, despite the school's withdrawal from the Ontario 
Federation of Students (OFS). 

OFS is organizing the appeal to withhold the second installment to 
provide the possibility of a fees strike in January. The strike would be 
designed to force the Ontario government to retreat' from tuition fee 
increases announced last spring. 

Carleton Students' Federation president Bruce Cameron estimated 
that 75 per cent of the returning students who registered paid in 

The "overwhelmingly good response" confirms original plans to seek 
cancellation of classes for a province-wide day of study of the issues 
October 10," Cameron said. 

Meanwhile, University of Ottawa student council president Peter 
Beach said his organization supported the OFS campaign because it 
had no choice, 

"We were forced to take the OFS line," he said. "We feel there must 
be some solidarity." 

In several summer OFS meetings Beach had demanded an 
immediate fees strike in September but most other student councils 
oplcd for the more cautious installment-paying approach. 

About 5000 students have signed a petition calling for the 
cancellation of tuition fee increase, he added. 

The disagreement was a major reason for U of O's withdrawal from 
OFS. But Beach conceded that a September fees strike by U of O alone 
would have been futile. 

"We had hoped that Carleton would support us but because Bruce 
Cameron is on the OFS executive they followed the OFS line," he said. 

Beach said his council had mailed pamphlets to all registering 
students asking them to withhold their second installments, but the 
person running the campaign had been in a car accident and could not 
organize around the issue while students were actually registering. 

He had no idea how many students had followed the council's plea 
About 5000 students have signed a petition calling for the cancellation 
of tuition fee increases, he added. U of O will hold its study session on 
financing October 4. 

In Toronto, the Graduate Students Union is joining undergraduates 
in urging the withholding of second term fees. In addition, as a symbolic 
project, the GSU is proposing that $100 of second term installments be 
held back and placed in a joint trust fund administered by a trust 
company. Fees for most U of T graduate students rose by $100 this 
year. Other graduate unions, including the one at the University of 
Guelph, are reportedly proposing similar actions. 

Contrary to the policy of the chief returning officer in 
Canada, and Spadina riding returning Officer Terrance 
Mott, in at least one student residence, students are not 
being enumerated unless they are financially 

Mark Laughton (APSC I) told The Varsity that the 
enumerators for Devonshire Place claimed "accepting 
money from your parents means you must be 
enumerated in your home riding." 

Last week, Canada's chief electoral officer, J. M. 
Hamel, stated that students could vote in the riding in 
which what they considered their "ordinary residence." 
In doing so, he appeared to overturn an earlier 
interpretation of voting regulations that stated that 
students' normal residences are where their parents live. 

The Devonshire enumeration occurred Wednesday 
evening, according to Andres Mand (APSC II). 
Hamel's Tuesday statement on enumerating students 
was reported in Wednesday's Varsity. 

On Thursday, Mott indicated that he had accepted 
Hamel's ruling. "We are making every endeavour to 
see thai any student who wants to vote here, can vote", 
he said. 

Yet, according to Laughton, the enumerators at the 
Devonshire residence maintained that if a student 
receives any money from his parents, he can only vote 

in his parent's riding, by proxy. 

"Only three or four in all of South House" were 
enumerated, says Laughton 

Harry Dunstan (APSC III) agreed that about three 
had been enumerated. There are about 80 residents in 
South House, one third of the whole residence, he said. 

Mand, of East House, and John Stinson (FOR II) of 
North House, stated that they were enumerated in 
Spadtna only because they were independent from their 

Several other students contacted by The Varsity said 
no enumerators had been in touch with them 

Gary Avain {APSC III) said that he didn't know 
anything about getting enumerated here. He thought he- 
would end up by voting in his parents' riding 

John McCaugherty (FOR I) commented that he had 
not seen any enumerators. 

Returning officer Mott, reached yesterday, said that 
he did not know Devonshire House had been 
enumerated in that fashion. He promised to check with 
the enumerators and enumerate it again, if needed, or 
any other residence he found had been improperly 1 

"I'm determined to allow every student who wants to 
vote to vole," he said. If necessary, "I will ask authority 
to extend the enumeration period." 

Blues Cor Dorat (34) was Toronto's main threat against Ottawa In a gams Saturday In which the Gee-Gees showed both an effective offence and defence.

Students will mass today: ask that charges be droped 

Nineteen students and supporters were arrested last year when police stormed Slmcoe Hall. 

A demonstration tomorrow against the U of T 
administration is being planned concerning the library crisis 
which erupted in three occupations last spring. 

Called by an informal defense committee for four persons 
arrested in the break-up of the first occupation, 
demonstrators will rally in the Sid Smith lobby at 1 pm and 
March to Simcoe Hall. There they will demand that <he 
admistralion use its good offices effectively to have the 
charges dropped, as was promised by then Acting President 
Jack Sword after the second occupation. 

Facing a charge of assaulting police are Bill Getty, Mark 
Goldblatt and Randi Reynolds. Tom McLaughlin and 
Goldblatt are charged with obstructing police. 

Their trials come up Tuesday September 26. The four are 
asking that as many people as possible attend their trials, 
which are slated for 10 am in the Old City Hall, court 33. 

The university did stop charges of trespassing against 19 
people as promised. 

The issue of stack access has not yet been entirely resolved. 

A Senate decision last spring would allow undergraduates 
access to the books if they had established "academic need". 
U of T vice president Don Forster recently recommended to 
the Governing Council's Academic Affairs Committee that 
they set up a committee to report to him on what "academic 
need" should be defined as. 

This and the trials are expected to be discussed at an open 
meeting following the demonstration in the International 
Student Centre, 33 St. George, Pendarves Lounge. Last year's 
Open Stacks Committee, which helped organize the cam- 
paign, may be revived.

evaluations and course union funding would also 
be handled by this organization. We must invent a 
constitution for this body. 

At this conference students in each subject 
area will have a vote either through the course 
union or through an ad hoc caucus. 

If you are in Arts and Science and interested 
in the Union or just interested in finding out what 
going on politically - please attend - absolutely no 
previous political experience is necessary. 

If you are taking courses in Anthropology, 
Psychology, Sociology, French, German, 
Philosophy, Zoology, Botany, Fine Art, English, 
Geology, Religious Studies or East Asian we need 
you to participate in a caucus. Please call: Phil 
Dack (928-4903) or Marty Stollar (928-4909) if you 
wish to take part in a caucus.

Varsity steps 
into info gap 

Today, The Varsity publishes a special 
community guide theme issue of I'Hebdo. 

The things contained in it — valuable 
information both for returning and new 
students about living in Toronto — could have 
been included in the Students' Administrative 
Council Handbook. They weren't. 

Surprising, considering that the Eric 
Miglin-John Helliwell-Ross Flowers ticket got 
elected to SAC on a platform emphasizing 
communication and service. 

This service-oriented SAC broke with 
recent tradition and decided against ap- 
pointing an independent editor for the Han- 
dbook. Instead, an executive committee 
headed by vice-president Helliwell supervised 
production of the book. 

The executive had, albeit momentarily, 
appointed two students to edit their publica- 
tion, but began reconsidering their decision 
when some members had second thoughts 
about the control the executive could hope to 
exercise over the outside editors even with the 
rigid supervision guidelines they had 

Past councils have been burnt by 
adverse public reaction to previous Han- 
dbooks edited by persons not currently sitting 
on the SAC executive. And, this year's ex- 
ecutive felt that they didn't want to chance a 

So, they set to work preparing an 
executive-supervised "apolitical" Handbook 
which sought to merely represent within 
available space limits the groups offered 
space in the publication. The result has been 
relatively usless, uncontroversial filler for the 
advertising copy abundant in both volumes of 
this year's effort. 

The book, by its ommission of a 
significant community guide, assumes that 
university students lead a rather restricted 
iife, seldom venturing off campus. In those 
few areas where it pretends to supply some 
information, there seems to be little reason to 
trust its accuracy. In its section on bookstores

the generally more expensive U of T 
Bookstores come off looking best. L'Hebdo's 
community guide tells a different, more ac- 
curate story. 

Where to buy books and get a cheap, 
half-decent meal aren't the only keys to the 
basics of survival for U of T students. The 
Handbook falls down badly in its lack of 
discussion of the key educational and social 
issues facing the campus students. By ab- 
dicating this responsibility, it leaves students 
to wallow in an informationless vacuum. 

Before setting its budget next spring the 
council should seriously evaluate wheter it 
believes it really is worthwhile publishing a 
student handbook. If it decides in the af- 
firmative, it should not pretend that a useful 
document will likely be produced by a 
politically sensitive SAC. 

The choice, at least in the near future lies 
between having a creative, independent 
editor produce a useful book or a SAC 
committee hammer out something of little 

Ad policy 

Readers may be a bit 
puzzled by The Varsity's 
readiness to criticize some 
regular advertisers in its com- 
munity guide. They shouldn't 
be. Advertising and editorial 
policy are two separate things 
at The Varsity. 

In order to publish, the 
paper must earn revenue 
through accepting paid adver- 
tising. It would be hypocritical 
and economically impractical 
for The Varsity to attempt to 
assess relative political or 
moral acceptability when 
soliciting advertising. 

Any which does not violate 
the paper's restrictions 
against ads requesting pay- 
ment in advance of receipt 0/ 
goods, non-AOSC charter 
flight ads, and ads which are 
judged to be misleading. 

The Varsity reserves and 
indeed exercises the right to 
editorially criticize any adver- 
tisers it deems deserving of 
such action. Varsity adver- 
tisers will not be allowed to 
Influence the paper's editorial 
policy in any way.

Eat, drink, and be merry 

Toronto is a city where you can eat well without 
spending a fortune, thanks to the various ethnic 
groups which have, among other things, given 
variety and verve to the city's restaurants. 

As everywhere else, Chinatown is where to 
begin searching for top-notch food at low, low 
prices. Usually, you don't have to search too long. 
The remnants of Toronto's Chinatown lie along 
Dundas Street between University and Bay. Sai 
Woo is the best, don't let anybody argue with you. 
But if you like a beer to wash down your 
won-tons, go to the Kwongchow, which will help 
you out with pages of pre-programmed meals for 
any number of persons. Moon Wah, west of 
Spadlna, is excellent too, if a little barny, Every 
one has a take-out service, some deliver, if 
erratically. If you just can't budge, call the South 
China (481-6101) which only delivers; stick to 
mundane Items, and you'll be OK. 

Pizzas, are filling, no-worry fare, too, and as far 
as I know, all pizzerias deliver. New York Pizza 
House has the tastiest pie around (925-1736). 
Pizza Pizza will put such things as 
marshmallows, pineapple and cherries on your 
order, If your tastes run that way, and there is a 
ten percent discount on orders picked up — they 

have branches all over the city. (Their -1.75 
lasagna Is just a heated 39 cent can of the stuff, 
though.) The Pizza Patio, on Bloor diagonally 
across from Varsity Stadium, is overpriced, but 
then it's the only place In town you can get a beer 
with your pizza. 


Other places for pizza (some will deliver more 
substantial food as well — ask) are Papa Micelii at 
920-2201, Mr. Pizza (Dupont and St. George) at 
962-5001. If you're in the mood for a true Italian 
meal, where pasta is only a first course and veal is 
cooked as only Romans can cook it, go to 
Capriccio's, 580 College Street. Not too ex- 
pensive, licensed for beer and wines, and very 

There are several robust Hungarian dining 
rooms on Bloor down near Bathurst. The Con- 
tinental, 521 Bloor West, is the best. For less than 
$2.50 you can get a bowl of earthy homemade 
soup, a goulash or wiener schnitzel with a 
peppery salad and potatoes or dumplings, a slice 

of cheese strudel and coffee. On weekends try 
their crunchy roast duck with red cabbage and a 
spicy stuffing. Good for the soul. Go before five or 
after eight: the Hungarians are very loyal to this 
place, and there aren't many seats. 

A little further east there's the Rajput, which is a 
purveyor of Indo-Pakistani dishes. The solicitous 
staff will guide you through the multiplicity of 
dishes; do be sure to order a birlyhani. 

The Old Spaghetti Factory, tucked away behind 
St. Lawrence Centre, is a huge, glitzy place 
chock-a-block with tiffany lamps and all manner 
of oddments. You can get spaghetti in a dozen or 
so styles, mixing several on your plate, if you wish. 
It's cheap, It's fun, but the pasta could be lots 
better (don't get taken In by the cheese and burnt 
butter version, that supposedly kept Homer alive 
while he was churning out the Odyssey). 
Licenced, and usually full. Reservations, 

There will be times you'll want to splurge. 
Winston's, The Westbury, Three Small Rooms are 
all unparalleled, but who's kidding whom — they 
are not students' hangouts. La Chaumiere, which 
is full every night of the week, will give you a 
four-course French dinner for as little as $4.00, 
and the wine list is extensive and reasonable. 
Your mom will love it when she comes to town 
(Church & Charles 922-0500). Lunch at the 
Copenhagen Room, 101 Bloor West, can make a 
Danophile out of you. Those irresistable 
open-face sandwiches don't cost much at all and 
you can have a Tuborg, or some askuavit frozen in 
a barrel of Ice. Go for lunch, though; dinner prices 
go up on exactly the same items. When spring 
comes again, and you're on the verge of 
graduating, wander over to the Park Plaza one 
day and have lunch, or brunch, on their roof. 
Really not too expensive, and a terrific view. You 
can sit In a lawn chair and sip coffee, or amuse 
yourself with their putting green. 

For a refreshing alternative, try Etherea foods in 
Rochdale. An imaginative variety of vegetarian 
and health foods. Expecially good are their fruit 
juices and colourful desserts. 

On campus, go to the Huron Groceteria, on 
Huron one block above Harbord, for take$out 
sandwiches that are infinitely better than the 
plastic stuff you'll find in the university's 

If you just want protein, and are in a hurry, you'll 
be able to find the string of places that will sear 
you a hamburger. Harvey's, Mr. Zum's, Harvey 
Wallbanger's ... the list, alas, goes on. 

Bill Mac Vicar 


So you've had your fill of 
boiled turnips at Hart House? 
So you think that not every 
damn meal has to include 
crinkly, soggy French fries? 
So you decide to invite the 
gang over for Feijoada or Veal 
Prince Orloff. Where do you 

Well, there's no sense 
running around the city for 
brown sugar or ground chuck 
or converted rice; It's the 
same all over, so save the 
trouble. Dominion and 
Loblaws and Power all have 
stores near the campus, and, 
anyway, you can't go far 
without coming across one. 
The milk stores, Mac's and 
Becker's, ditto. These arei 
convenient for such things as 
cigarettes at 10:30 pm, and 
some of them can supply you 
with a bag of ice in a pinch. 

But if you want something 
special, or just like shopping 
in places that haven't yet 
learned that chickens grow, 
disjointed, in sealed plastic 
rectangles, where do you go? 

Well, for starters, you could 
walk over to Kensington 
Market, west of Spadina, 
south of College. Fruits and 
vegetables line the streets at 
the various vendors' stands, 
and you can poke about for 
hours deciding exactly which 
tomatoes and oranges you 
should choose. 
Butchershops, poulterers, fish 
markets and cheese shops 
are there too, and don't pass 

up the bakeshops which 
might have fresh- baked 
bagels. Have you ever tried a 
fresh-baked bagel? Do. 

The St. Lawrence market, 
down east of the centre of the 
same name, is housed in an 
old brick building which Is 
usually thronged with shrewd 
shoppers. Some crisp Satur- 
day morning this fall, take 
yourself down there. You can 
get chickens and turkeys with 
heads and feet still attached 
(not all. Thanksgiving fowl

The monopolistic Liquor 
Control Board of Ontario 
doesn't have to offer sale 
prices to draw customers, as 
you might expect. (In fact, it 
often seems as though the 
whole point of the board was 
to keep customers away, but 
this is changing. 

Still, you can find bargains 
among its ever increasing 
stock list. You can get a good, 
reliable bottle of wine for less 
than three dollars. The trick is 
knowing what's what among 
that baffling cardboard forest 
of chateaux and varietals. Go 
to the self-serve store at 
Yonge and St. Clair, look at all 
the pretty bottles, and take 
your choice. Here are some 
worthy buys. 

Red wines: Naoussa from 
Greece (1786B) might be the 
best wine bargain on the 

boards at $2.10. Close are 
Chianti Brolio (1066B) which, 
having jettisoned its raffia 
flagon, goes for $2.45 in a 
respectable-looking bottle. 
Seppelt Chalambar Burgundy 
(951 B) is $2.30. (Australian 
wines, like this one, are in-* 
expensive and good; worth 
trying). A bit classier is 
Sichel's delightful Beaujolais 
(993B); You can serve It 
slightly chilled and nobody 
can fault you for it. If you want 
a dark, sumptuous wine of 
true quality, you can't do 
better for the money than 
Barolo (1047B) at $3.40. 

If you're cautious about 
your wine and want to stick 
with a safe rose, Bouchard's 
Vin Rose (942B) at $2.30 is a 
sturdy and safe buy. Por-

Reading between the lines 

The Toronto Star 

The Star calls itself "The First". 
Thfs superlative could mean just 
about anything, but in The Star's case 
it means that it sells more papers and 
makes more money than any other 
newspaper in Canada. 

Its spanking blue trucks and posh 
new building at Toronto's most 
impressive address. One Yonge 
Street, Toronto 1 , are there to 
remind the public that it really Is 
the General Motors of the news- 
paper world. 

"There's more for you In The Star", 
is another slogan they love to repeat 
— again a statement sufficiently am- 
biguous that is is not technically in- 
accurate. In terms of pages, the state- 
ment is true — The Star is definitely 
the heaviest paper in the city. 

However, no promise of quality is 
made in the paper's slogan. 

This isn't hard to understand, 
however, when one considers the 
stress The Star places on accuracy — 
a certain type of accuracy, that is. 
And, in its own terms, it does fairly 
well — it probably spells fewer names 
incorrectly, makes less grammatical 
errors, and has fewer headlines at- 
tached to the wrong story than just 
about any other Toronto paper. 

As far as other types of accuracy 
go, however, such as whether all the 
significant details of a story are 
brought to light, or how accurately an 
issue is presented to the public. The 
Star doesn't score quite so well. 

Some of the most dramatic proof of 
this can be found in Its recent 
coverage of the Western Hospital 
worker's strike. The Star can take a 
considerable share of the credit for 
effectively killing any possible public 
support for the 350 fired workers. 

The Star gave little attention to the 
real issue — the fact that the workers, 
mostly Immigrants who spoke little 

English, were being paid rock bottom 
wages for long hours of menial, un- 
pleasant chores. 

Instead, The Star played up the 
inconvenience that the strike was for 
doctors and nurses, by forcing them 
— Heaven forbid to perform the 
worker's degrading tasks, (Including a 
full— fledged surgeon who swept the 
floor) To illustrate the horror of this 
situation. The Star ran huge, tear- 
jerking photos of doctors and nurses 
with mops. This, The Star reasoned, 
was more Important than the fact that 
some hospital workers were forced to 
live on $70 a week, and now on 
nothing. They can't even collect un- 
employment Insurance. 

Or, more likely. The Star realized 
this might be too shocking for its 
readers, since, after all, one of its 
main purposes is to create a smug 
satisfaction with what's going on in 
Toronto, among Toronto's newspaper 
readers, just the way Father Knows 
Best managed to do it for TV 

Which may partly explain why The 
Star runs dry, lifeless features on what 
Metro people are doing — like 
whether there was a crowd at the 
island this weekend, how many kids 
got lost at the Ex — while more 
significant issues, such as how Toron- 
to is being gradually destroyed by 
developers or how our economic 
system is failing to solve un- 
employment, are not adequately 

Apart from the fact that this makes 
for a boring, bland newspaper, it is 
just plain misleading. 

On August 7, The Star ran a front 
page banner story with a flashy 
headline saying Metro air was getting 
cleaner by the day, which turned out 
to be mostly an interview with David 
Rotenberg, a strongly pro-develop- 
ment alderman and a probable can- 
didate for mayor In the December 

electfon, who made some un- 
substantiated comments about how 
great the pollution situation Is. 

Or, there was the "Insight" feature 
in July on the new supermlnlstrles 
created by Premier Bill Davis In his 
cabinet reorganization earlier this 
year. The article, headlined, "New 
supermlnlstrles quieten most critics", 
turned out to be nothing more than a 
series of comments by the new super- 
powerful ministers on how much they 
were enjoying their new, more power- 
ful jobs. They seemed fairly pleased, 
the article revealed, and came out 
with some classic lines like "Well, it 
brings us closer to the people." The 
Star made no comment. 

Ironically enough, though, The Star 
still likes to portray itself as champion 
of the underdog. That's why they run 
front page stories about a woman who 
needed $10,000 for a heart operation 
and the next day report that, thanks to 
generous Star readers, the money has 
been raised. Or carry on huge cam- 
paigns for downtown children to get 
out of the city In the- summer. 
Although these may well be 
worthwhile projects, they are decep- 
tive In that they encourage a 
patronizing approach to the "less for- 
tunate" rather than examining the 
system that makes them less 

The Star does of course stray 
beyond charity for its big crusades. 

There is Its perpetual campaign for 
the Spadina expressway, and its 
obsession with an independent 
capitalist Canada. 

And, although the paper often 
sounds like the NDP between elec- 
tions, once the writs are issued, there 
is always a sudden conversion to the 

Then there was the campaign to 
correct that major Injustice that 
prevented Bobby Hull from playing for 
Team Canada. Although The Star's 

continual hammering on this issue 
failed to win Its goal, it did manage to 
get the prime minister into the act, 
voicing his support for Including Hull 
on the team. 

Which actually Isn't entirely 
surprising, when you consider all the 
favors The Star does for Trudeau, 
including running such gems of 
analytical journalism as the front page 
story revealing "Trudeau says 
Liberals unite nation." 

But, then when you've got the best 
classified ad section In Toronto, you 
can get away with a lot.

The Globe Is so significantly better 
than The Star, that It probably 
deserves significantly less criticism. 

That Isn't to say that It Is very 
progressive In Its editorial policy or 
generally portrays an Issue but It does 
mean that Its approach to reporting Is 
on the whole more honest and less 
patronizing to the reader. 

There are exceptions — notably Its 
coverage of the May general strike in 
Quebec, when The Globe ran vivid

left unattended by striking hospital 
workers, were running wild through

arguments during a meeting of the

The Globe often joins The Star In Its 
quest for the mundane local color. 
Car accidents, especially those in- 
volving fatalities, automatically merit 
coverage, according to standing 
Globe orders. They don't, however, 
often delve beneath the sensational 
level of the Incident and try to find out 
why there are so many accidents and 
If car companies, which can be 
counted among newspapers' most 
lucrative clients, have Ignored safety 
to maximize profit. 

However, The Globe, at least, does 
have the guts to come out with ex- 
poses on government, where The Star 
usually restricts Its exposes to small, 
rip-off outfits. 

Not unexpectedly, The Globe does 
not long tolerate reporters whose 
stories continually don't jive with the 
paper's editorial policy. One-time 
Globe Quebec correspondant 
Malcolm Held, recognized as one of 
the best English language reporters 
filing from Quebec, was given the 
choice last year of heading home to 
Toronto for re-asslgnment or quitting 
when his articles persisted In presen- 
ting a picture of Quebec life which 
dln't agree with the paper's editorial 
policy. * 

With the demise of The Toronto 
Telegram, The Globe raced The Star 
to pick up former Tely readers. "You 
make the choice", The Globe's 
posters proclaimed. They lost, badly. 

However, The Globe may have the 
last laugh. The Star's expensive new 
presses have been breaking down all 
the time. Most of tthe Star's papers 
are printed at the Tely building, which 

they have leased until next year. And, 
The Globe owns the building after the 
Star lease expires. The Star has 
reportedly asked The Globe for an 
extension of their lease for another 
year. Without the lease extension and 
the use of the Tely plant, The Star may 
not be able to print enough papers to 
meet demand. And, many of the un- 
served readers will likely switch to The

of developers will play a key role, The

A student's garden of politics: 

left, right, and centre 

In a society racked with contradictions, it is understandable 
that young people, especially, should become politically active 
in order to change an intolerable status quo. Social problems, 
and personal problems that turn out to be widespread social 
problems, demand a response. Often the response is to move 
to the left, although occasionally the ideas of the right appeal. 
Religion, the 'counter-culture", despair, or cynical acceptance 
of the status quo also claim recruits. 

However, the student moving to the left often finds that 
socialists are split into many factions, quarrelling over 
seemingly obscure theoretical points, and unable to relate 
effectively to the "masses" in their practice. Relations between 
people on the left turn out to not be idyllic, but fraught with 
conflict and tension, although not as barbaric as the inhuman 
interactions found in most of the rest of society. 

This should not be surprising. The left seeks to overturn the 
entire world order. The task of finding the right path to 
defeating the massive power of the capitalist status quo cannot 
be an easy one, and theoretical questions acquire enormous 
strategic and practical importance when seen in this light. And 
the mutilation of human beings that poisons human relations 
cannot be overcome through will alone, but requires thought 
and on-going social practice. Complete change cannot come 
until the causes of the mutilation are removed. 

To understand and participate in the social change that is 
necessary, it is crucial to relate to the left and its enemies. This 
guide is intended to provide help to that end. 

Communist Party of Canada 

The CP is heir to the mantle of Lenin and the Russian 
Revolution; the Canadian section of the "international corn- 

Movement and the Canadian Peoples' United Front Against US 
Imperialism, are Maoist, although admirers of Mao have been conspiracy". Once a potent force on the Canadian 
polecat scene, the CP declined under the influence of decades 
or btalinism and control from Moscow. Increasingly it has 
become a cautious, non-revolutionary, reformist party, con- 
cerned with elections and united fronts on liberal-progressive 
ssues. Its deserved reputation as an apologist for the Moscow

On campus, it functions as the U of T Communist Club 
operating a book table and turning out leaflets on on-and off-

campus such as the library crisis, but their small numbers 
have limited the effect they have had. 

Communist Party of Canada (Marxlat-Lenlnlst) 

The CPC(M-L) and its front groups, the Toronto Student 

known to suggest that the party was started by the CIA to 
discredit Maoism. Be that as it may, they are in many ways 
caricatures of leftists, specializing in the mechanical chanting 
of slogans the production of wild rhetoric, (rival groups are 
"hens pecking on dung in the backyard of the working-class 
movement"), and suicidal attacks on police, they publish Mass 
Line and Peoples' Canada Daily News. Their activities include 
the holding of "mass democracies" in which they harangue 
audiences in Sid Smith lobby, and forums sponsored by 
another front group, the Academic Activities Committee. Two 
recent clashes with police have left many of them facing stiff jail

On campus, they will operate primarily this year through the

which they play a leading, but not controlling role. They will 
focus on the issue of racism, and on campus issues such as 
access to the library and support for library workers. They also

The Old Mole Is one of the few campus political groups which 
has no ties with off-campus organizations. Formed about a

Although they say in their 
sendence and socialism are 
in practice, they tend to 

concentrate almost exclusively on nationalist issues devoid of 
socialist content. Their major campaigns have been for an 85% 
quota of Canadian professors, and for independent Canadian 

unions. This has tended to ally them with bourgeois (but 
nationalist) professors and graduate students, and with reac- 
tionary Canadian business unions. 

They are not very active on campus, but occassionally 
sponsor speakers or forums and sell their paper New Canada. 

NDP/ Waffle 

With the formation of the Waffle group in the NDP, the 
campus NDP club became a Waffle group. The group' was 
active in sponsoring teach-ins and other activities supporting 
an independent socialist Canada, but now, with the split of the 
Waffle into a left caucus within the NDP and an external Waffle 
Movement for an Independent Socialist Canada, the future is 
unclear. It is expected that Waffie/MISC will organize on 
campus in much the same way as the old Waffle did, since the 
group derives much of its support from students and 

University of Toronto Liberal Club 

The U. of T. Liberal club is the official party organization on 
campus. In the main, ft consists of aspiring Pierre Trudeaus, 
and reflects the parent party, although it sometimes deviates 
from party policy on minor Issues such as the legalization of 
drugs. They can be expected to be active in the federal election 
campaign, and the municipal if the party runs candidates. 

University of Toronto Progressive Conservative Association 

Like the Liberals, the party organization on Campus. They 
too are active In elections and party conventions. 

Pollution Probe 

Raises ecological issues. Concentrates on educating the 
public about pollution, and pressuring various levels of 
government to do something about it. Generally raises the 
problem of pollution as separate from larger political 

questions. The urban team has done some noteworthy anti- 
developer work. Members tend to be reformist liberals rather 
than radicals. 

Community Homophlle Association of Toronto 

CHAT seeks to raise consciousness among gay people and 
remove sexist anti-gay structures and attitudes in straight 
society. It operates a community centre at 58 Cecil St., does 
counselling, sponsors speakers and dances, and holds regular 
weekly meetings. Includes both men and women. 

Toronto Gay Action 

More politically oriented than CHAT, although many TGA 
members are also members of CHAT. Holds demonstrations 
and other actions in support of gay lib. Has an analysis that ties 
sexism to the repressive nature of capitalist society. Contains 
few women. The gay paper Body Politic is put out 
predominantly by TGA people. 

Christian World Liberation Front 

Uses the rhetoric of revolution and the counter culture to 
peddle a reactionary form of Christianity. Says the world's 
problems can be solved through love and devotion to Jesus, 
rather than through active opposition to oppression and 
exploitation. (If only we love the imperialists, and teach them by 
our example to love us, all will be well!) Although a completely 
different religion, they can be compared to Hare Krishna for the 
way in which they boil down a major religion into a few vague 
platitudes, and for the way in which they foster personal 
salvation at the expense of social commitment. 

Western Guard 

A fascist group which seeks to promote racism ("We need a 
White Canada"), anti-semitism, and anti-communism. Known 
for the disruption of meetings and physical attacks on leftists, 
gay people, and drug users. Seeks to build a base among 
immigrants from Eastern Europe. Not a campus-based group, 
but has disrupted meetings on campus.

Harmful Drugs 

Some drugs are addictive. You need to take 
them In order to function normally. Addiction 
however, has as much to do with economics and 
social position as It has to do with biochemistry, 
though the press pretends this is not so. If you get 
strung out on things, you could get strung out on 
drugs. If you don't get strung out, don't worrv 
about it. 7 
Heroin, cigarettes, speed, coca-cola, cocafne 
alcohol, m.d.a., t.v., opium, white bread, tran- 
quillizers, and candy are all physiologically har- 
mful In large or frequent doses.

The first trip Is often disorienting, liberating to 
some, frightening to others. Many find It im- 
portant to have a friend around to lean on. Some 
recommend a light dose for the first trip, others 
recommend a heavy dose. One-half to one tab of 
street acid (40 to 100 mlcs, clinical) Is light. One to 
four tabs (200 to 300 mlcs, clinical) can be heavy 
Above 300 mlcs, there appears to be no further

who are uncomfortable about It, that will become

•••and coping with the law 

When approached by a policeman, two things should be alwavs 
remembered: the man has a lot of power and the power can be 


The Individual must be aware that he has certain civil rights and the 
Individual must also be aware that some of these civil rlohts will be 
refused by Individual police actions. 

Remember Tactic Number One: If things are uncool, play along with 
the police. 

You never have to tell a police officer your name, age or address 
unless you have been 'lawfully' arrested. 

You never have to tell a police officer whether you have a place to 
stay or a Job. K 

You never have to carry or show a police officer your wallet or anv 
money you have with you. 

You are under no obligation to stand and talk to a police officer If 
you do not wish to talk to him, you may walk away. He cannot force you 
to remain with him unless he makes a 'lawful' arrest. 

If you are accused of a crime, and you are not guilty, a simple denial 
— and no more — should be made. Your silence cannot be held 
against you. 

Insist on speaking to a lawyer before answering any questions 
whatever. This Is your right: Insist on It. {It may also be common sense 
especially If you do not understand what Is happening and the police 
officer does.) 

Generally, you are under no obligation to answer any question the 
police officer might put to you — with two exceptions: 

1) If you are the driver of a vehicle — not a passenger - you must 
produce a Driver's. License, and an Automobile Insurance Card 

2) If a police officer asks you what you are doing; that Is If he asks 
you to justify your presence In the place where you are found you 
must tell him what you are doing. Walking, If you are just walking. 

There Is no such thing as an arrest "for suspicion" or something If 
an officer tells you this, you may walk away and continue your legal 
business^ The officer Is obliged to tell you If you are arrested and the 
charge. Remember - the police officer is the only person who can use 
force and generally get away with It. 

You do not have to submit to a search of your person unless the 
officer has probable and reasonable grounds. But, the officer does not 
have to Inform you of these grounds. Unless arrested, the officer can 
only frisk you, but not enter your pockets or have you empty them 
When under arrest, he can then "lawfully" search your person 
clothing, bags and car. 

To enter a private residence for reasons of search, the police officer 
must have a search warrant accurately describing the premises — 
address, room number, etc., the reason for the search, the offense 
that has been committed, and a description of the goods to-be 
searched. The search warrant Is only good for the day it has Indicated 
on It. The police officer also needs a search warrant to search your car 

The following Is a list of organizations in Toronto offering legal 
advice and representation. Some of these will only handle certain 
kinds of cases, for example law students are only authorized to appear 
as counsel In Provincial (Magistrates') Courts and in Small Claims 
(Division) Courts. For many non-Indictable and summary conviction 
offenses, you will not require a lawyer to represent you In court but 
you should definitely get legal counselling anyway. For indictable 
offenses - get a lawyer] All of these services can give a client 
nformatlon on obtaining Legal Aid Certificates and direction on what 
kind of assistance his or her situation demands.

Games people play: Boozing in Toronto 

There are 37 valid reasons for 
going drinking, and Toronto has 
enough of a variety of drinking 
places to fulfil anyone's 

The most publicized,/ and 
recently the most successful, are 
the so-called "swingers' " bars. 
These are reported to attract am- 
bitious or horny young men and 
women, dressed In style and 
willing to pay a substantial (for 
poor students) cover charge, In 
order to hear good music and to 
try to pick each other up. Thelr- 
long-term goal Is monogamous 
companslonshlp while pursuing a 
career of boredom and ladder- 
cllmblng. Examples are the Coal 
Bin, Queen and Bay, and the 
Nickelodeon, Yonge near Dundas. 

Similar to these, but different In 
style, are bars which appeal to 
young, together people, primarily 
from the suburbs, who go mostly 
In small groups looking for a 
good time, ordering jugs of beer, 
listening to local hard rock or 
good blues bands (such as 
Toronto's Downchild's Blues 
Band), and bopping out to an 

adjacent alleyway for a toke 
between sets. Clothing is Informal 
but nevertheless with-it, and 
pfck-ups are often made here as 
well. Examples Include the 
Gasworks, south of Yonge and 
Wellesley, and the newly-opened 
Generator, Yonge and Egllnton 
(both owned along with the Coal 
Bin, by the same fast-rising 
young man). 

Other similar bars which cater 
both to suburban hippies and to 
young people living downtown, 
are Forbes Tavern, Mutual and 
Shuter (near Jarvls), and The 
Attic in the Beverley, Queen near 
Beverley, (A favourite hangout of 
campus revolutionaries). 

Establishments which aim to 
re-create the Old Country at- 
mosphere right here in Toronto 
are the Brunswick House, 
Brunswick and Bloor, downstairs, 
which offers chintzy decorations! 
and fifth-rate music (although up- 
stairs has Dixieland jazz); the 
Chez Moi, Charles east of Yonge 
providing terrible singalong 
piano and Jock, straight clientele' 
and the Red Lion Public Inn 

Jarvis south of Wellesley, which 
comes the closest to a real 
English pub atmosphere. 

Taverns providing a congenial 
atmosphere for relaxed con- 
versations with friends, In- 
tersperesed with various kinds of 
entertainment (from either the 
stage or the audience) Include 
the Clinton, Clinton and Bloor, 
(the quiet rooms upstairs) and 
Grossman's Tavern, Spadlna and 
Cecil, which Is excellent for a 
cheap supper with a beer, and 
which offers good-time music 
and a clientele of street people, 
workers and American exiles. 

Middle-class students may 
nave an interesting experience In 
the Hotel Winchester, Winchester 
and Parliament, a decidedly un- 
pretentious enterprise serving 
the needs of the workers and the 
unemployed of Cabbagetown. 
Authentic country music and a 
lively crowd and dance floor en- 
sure an entertaining evening to 
the student who knows his place. 

Developments to watch Include 
the El Mocambo, Spadlna south 
of College, (under new 

management), which Is close to 
the university, and is promising 
such top-notch artists as Long 
John Baldry and the Grease Ball 
Boogie Band. Their slogan Is "Of- 
fend a Friend, Bring Someone". 

Many deserving 
establishments must necessarily 
be passed over In such a review, 
but ommlsslon Is Intended for 
some. In particular, the expensive 
bars which cater to the already- 
established bourgeoisie are 
beneath contempt, along with the 
sexiest topless bars, seccetlons 
of a degenerate society that they 

Hoechst Research 

Early perception of danger 
points and easy identification of 
traffic signs so that their mes- 
sages can be instantly recog- 
nized, are two of the greatest 
problems of road safety. 
The fluorescent colours now 
used ^o mark highways often 
fade after a short time. But 
Hoechst research has devel- 
oped persistent fluorescent 
dyestuffs which have the valu- 
able attributes of maximum 
lightfastness and striking visual 
impact. The qualities of these 
dyestuffs improve identification 
of highway danger spots, men 
working, traffic signs, railway 
crossing and unlit roads In fact 
there is an almost inexhaustible 
number of identification uses. 
This is a major contribution by 
Hoechst to future road safety. 

Increases Highway 

Ahead through systems 

The new fluorescent dyestuffs 
are the result of Hoechst 
know-how and experience in 
many fields. They are the 
product of collaboration be- 
tween physicists and techni- 
cians engaged in research into 
dyestuffs and plastics. 
Systems thinking is the 
Hoechst strategy. Research, 
development and product ex- 
perience in many areas are 
concentrated on the solution of 
specific problems. 
To keep ahead — to solve the 
problems of today and to- 
morrow — Hoechst employs 
10,300 people in research and 
development with a research 
investment of more than 150 
million dollars. 

Helping Build Canada 

Products and ideas from 
Hoechst have touched and im- 
proved the quality of people's 
lives in every area around the 
world, in a hundred countries 
on six continents As an affiliate 
of the worldwide Hoechst or- 
ganization, Canadian Hoechst 
Limited has a full century of 
research and achievement to 
draw upon. In Canada, Hoechst 
is an autonomous company 
employing Canadians to serve 
Canadian needs 
Hoechst in Canada concerns 
itself with supplying both the 
present and future needs of 
Canadians, The range of prod- 
ucts and services covers the 
spectrum through industrial 
chemicals, dyestuffs, plastics, 
printing plates, human and 
veterinary medicines, pharma- 
ceuticals, and textile fibres. 
Hoechst products and services. 
Hoechst techniques and 
know-how in these fields, 
combined with a large interna- 
tional fund of experience, have

Best in browsing 

More markets 

If you're new on campus, you 
might make the common mistake 
of doing all your browsing at the 
University Bookroom. That's all 
right if your interests reside on 
the well-stocked shelves of 
literary criticism, drama, poetry 
or art. But don't expect any real 
bargains, don't expect books hot 
off the presses, and be prepared 
for curious emphases (the occult, 
for instance, and children's 
books), for odd gaps. 

Fine all-purpose bookshops 
are the two Book Cellars, one at 
Avenue road and Yorkville, the 
other at Yonge and Charles. 
These stores keep up with things, 
and they stock more periodicals 
than you'd ever want to read 
(though they're fun to leaf 
through). Good section (par- 
ticularly in the Yorkville shop) on 
film too. There is, by the way, a 
store that specializes only in film: 
Cine Books, 692-A Yonge Street. 

Britnell's, Yonge a block above 
Bloor, is a fine, old-style 
bookshop with gracious clerks 
and lots of burnished wood. 
Hard-covers are the big trade 
here, and they're pretty sure to 
have almost any newly-published 
trade book' they keep their stock 
longer than most places, too, I've 
found, so you might try here for a 
title published a year and a half 
ago. The clerks are endlessly 
helpful about finding out things 
for their customers (or callers), 

The Book Centre (their big sign 
says "Books and Music" so don't 
be confused, has a very lopsided 
stock, leaning to political 
ideologies of every description 
(though mostly left) and non- 
political ideologies, like the oc- 
cult, as well. They have a 
smattering of current releases, 
however, and the silver lining is a 
substantial 20 per cent discount 

on almost all their books. 

There are other good, general 
bookstores around the city, 
notable ones like Classics Books 
(the nearest one In the Colon- 
nade on Bloor Street), W. H. 
Smith, and Coles. Coles biggest 
shop is at Yonge and Charles and 
they have surely the biggest 
paperback stock in the city, but 
they also have tables littered with 
bargain books, usually remnants 
of best-(or non-) sellers, or 
technical textbooks and han- 
dbooks one edition old. 

The SCM Book Room, in the 
Rochdale building (ground floor, 
separate entrance) Is a very good 
store with a knowledgeable staff. 
It they get discounts from the 
publishers, they will pass them 
along to you. No such things here 
as mysteries or sci-fi, and general 
fiction is pretty Jejune, but history, 
social sciences and philosophy 

There are a few specialty 
shops around, like Cine Books, 
already mentioned, Hachette 
Toronto Is a French and German 
bookstore at 607 Yonge. 
Longhouse Books stocks only 
Canadian titles, and Is bigger 
than you think. There are more 
recherche specialties, too take 
walk down Yonge Street, with 
your eyes open, and hang a right 
at Queen. You'll find what you're 

Second-hand shops do not 
abound in this city, as they do In 
some others, but walk over to 
Volume One, on Spadina near 
College. They keep a stock of 
second-hand scholarly books, 
textbooks and the like. You could 
find something there unavailable 
elsewhere, if you were pessistent. 
Batta's Books, at 668 Yonge, has 
no extraordinary hard-cover 
selection (give it a once-over, 
what the hell), but this Is a print- 

have grotesque white meat 
breasts pre-injected with 
cooking oil), and all manner of 
things like ducks, geese and 
game, though these are liable 
to be frozen. At the back of 
the market is a feast of 
seafood — oysters, lobsters 
and giant prawns, banked on 
beds of crushed Ice. You'll get 
good cider here before almost 
anywhere el?e. 

Tired of ground beef and 
the colonel's unvarying 
chicken? The Elisabeth 
Delicatessen on Bloor just 
west of Brunswick will always 
have fine, European-type veal 
scallops and boneless roasts 
(expensive, though), plus 

addict's paradise. Mysteries, sci- 
fi, very current fiction, all paper- 
back, throng this tiny store, and 
prices start at half the marked 
price. I've found stuff like The 
Godfather, new thrillers, even 
serious fiction on their shelves 
within a week of release. The best 
part is that they will BUY your old 
books, hard and soft, at sub- 
stantial prices. Keep this place in 

Old Favorites, 250 Adelaide 
West, keeps old schoolbooks that 
nobody will every buy, decrepit 
Playboy mags and sets of old 
books. If you hunt around, it's just 
possible you might come across 
a set of Macaulay or some such, 
but wear your old clothes. Don't 
bother selling your books here; 
they give you lots better value if 
you apply it to new purchases 
(even that value is stingy) and 
you'll end up with some godawful 
book you'll never look at again. 
Sorry, Old Fave, but Batta has It 
all over you.

such nutritious delicacies as 
calve's liver, brains, veal 
kidneys and tripe. 

Just next door is the 
Budapest Bakery (they have 
another branch down in the 
Kensington Market area) 
which has a calorie-chocked 
display case of pastries, 
strudels and tartes. Also, they 
have a big selection of 
sausages and smoked meats, 
which are sliced as you order 
them, and Infinitely preferable 
to even the best cellophaned 
brands. Try the smoked

Down on Harbord, two 
blocks west of Spadina, the 
Harbord Bakery has ex- 
cellent Jewish breads and 
pastries. They also make 
good sandwiches. 

Steak women (and men) 
will, I hear tell, scour the city 
for a thick enough slab of beef 
to singe over the coals. 
Pickering Farms, on Yonge two 
blocks north, of Bloor, buys 
absolutely first-rate beef and 
cuts it thick and competently. 
You'll pay, however. This 
store is more expensive than 
most, but they earn every cent 
by stocking unusual items and 
being reluctant to pre- 
package vegetables. You can 
always get Schweppe's Tonic 
Water there, too. 

If you're interested in such 
things as fresh wheat germ, 
cold-pressed oils, and un- 

processed peanut butter, with 
bone meal or brewers yeast 
added (and you should be), 
go to Home of the Gourmet at 
550 Yonge. Even If you're a 
decadent, you can get 
lusciously rare sliced roast 
beef and make yourself the 
greatest sandwich In the 
world. Or they'll make one for

Trends in student financing 
"anything but encouraging" 
says student awards office 


U of T's student awards officer 
last Thursday described the im- 
plications of the present trends in 
student financing as "anything but 

Pulrick Phillips was Speaking at a 
teach-in on student aid and post- 
secondary financing sponsored by 
the SAC Fees Increase Tactics 
Committee ai Victoria College. 

The purpose of the meeting was to 
provide students with a basic un- 
derstanding of the issues behind the 
recent fees hike. Four guest speakers 
took pari; Phillips, Wynton Semple 
(former coordinator of the Ontario 
Federation of Students), Ceta 
Rumkhalawansingh (member of the 
Ontario Committee on Student 
Awards), and Craig Heron (present 
eo-ordinalor of OFS). 

The provincial government's 
tendency to increase loans and 
decrease grants in the Ontario Stu- 
dent Awards Program (OSAP) was 
stressed by all four speakers as one 
of the immediate issues for concern. 

Phillips stressed that with the 
great dependency of students on 
OSAP, and the instability of its 
policy, the welfare of a great many 
students is at stake, Thirty to 35 per 
cent of university students are 
enrolled in OSAP he said. 

Semple fell that the whole future 
of post-secondary education is at 

! T. ht Prospect of going into 
debl , he said, "acts as a dis- 
incentive to enrolment." He was 
speaking on the notion of 
accessibility, and how the present 
loan system is "inadequate" in en- 

suring equal opportunity of enrol- 
ment lo all members of society. 

Ramkhalawansingh said that 
OSAP funds are comprised of loan 
moneys supplied by the federal 
government, and grant funds 
supplied by the Ontario government. 
Last year, $14,000,000 of $43 
million budgeted grant money was 
never used, she said, but was instead 
pul back into the provincial 

The grant budget was lowered this 
year lo $32 million but it still will 
probably not be entirely spent, she 
charged. The surplus will 
presumably again be put back into 
(he provincial budget. 

Il is convenient for the provincial 
government to rely on the federal 
funds, as loans, she claimed, and to 
use ihe saving on their own educa- 
tion funds to balance their budget. 

Ontario grads form 
new student union 


The Ontario graduate student unions which pulled out of the 
Canadian Union of Graduate Students (CUGS) formed a new 
association last Saturday at Guelph. 

The Ontario Union of Graduate Students is the successor to 

wISewVrom C°UGS 0mmHtee ^ 

OUGS will deal with the problems confronting graduate students at 
the provincial leveL According to Stephan Kogitz, it will be more 
effective than CUGS would have been in lobbying against the fee hikes 
and sub Sl dy cutbacks facing graduate students. These problems exist at 
the provincial level said Kogitz, last year's Graduate Students' Union 
president at the U of T. 

The member universities, Queen's, Toronto, Waterloo, Western 
Gudph and MacMaster, found CUGS "not relevent" and "completely 
ineffective", Kogitz said. Mi«i»«wfjr 

Kogitz predicted the collapse in the near future of CUGS, and stated 
that many universities which are outside the Ontario union at present 
would soon join it. He believes that universities in other proving wiU 
also form provincial or regional associations. 

He said that in a few years there might be a need, again, for a 
national union. He cited the need for national graduate organization in 
the event of a readjustment of the amounts of money the federal 
government returns to the provinces each year 

OUGS will meet periodically on the campus of a member university

The Ontario government is 
negotiating now with the federal 
government for one billion dollars, 
from the Fiscal Transfers Act. ac-

audience. He said he expected a 
significant amount of this to end up 
as educational funds. 

Faculty backlash provokes probe 

PAC recommendations may revise 

the New PROGRAM 


The committee whose 
recommendations may lead to ma- 
jor changes in- the arts and science 
New Program began its work last 
Thursday night. 

Appointed by president John 
Evans to undertake a major review, 
the Presidential Advisory Com- 
mittee on the New Program began 
discussing the aims and objectives of 
the review. 

(The institution of the New 
Program three years ago included 
abolishing honours-general dis- 
tinctions and reduced the emphasis 
on exams. Since then there has been 
a conservative faculty backlash 
against the "lack of standards".) 

U of T president John Evans 
prefaced the meeting by com-, 
menling that the role of the com- 
mittee was "to make explicit 
problems in the faculty" and recom- 
mend changes if feasible. 

The underlying themes of the 
report, Evans stated, will focus on 
the machinery and approach lo 

academic planning, and the goals of 
the curriculum. 

The report itself Evans said must 
be "succint", and "clearly un- 
derstood to readers" with "no mis- 
inierpretation". He went on to say 
lhat suggestions in the report should 
be specific and practical. 

The report is to be submitted to 
the president by March I, 1973. 
Until March I the faculty of Arts 
and Science will review the report. 
During ihe summer, when most 
students are off campus, the Gover- 
ning Council will review the report 
and implement those changes which 
are feasible by Sept. 1973. 

According to Evans the "value of 
the report will be influenced" by its 

Committee member Bob 
Anderson (UCIV) asked why these 
changes could not be implemented 
in 1974. Evans replied that some 
recommendations could be easy to 
implement by September 1973, 
while others such as printing calen- 
dar changes could not be made in 

one year. 

"It gives you a target and forces 
ihe committee to sort out what can 
be done and what cannot be done in 
the lime alloted," said Evans. 

Robert Jervis (Chemical 
Engineering), a faculty member of 
the committee, asked how the presi- 
dent was likely to deal with the 
recommendations. Evans replied 
thai ihe machinery for the im- 
plimentation of proposals should be 
prepared beforehand by the ad- 
ministration so that recommen- 
dations will be implemented as they 
are received. 

At the beginning of the meeting, 
the committee, under chairman 
Daniel Berlyne, discussed whether 
ihe meetings were to be open or 
closed to visitors. It was decided 
after a 15 minute discussion behind 
closed doors, to have open meetings, 
bul with the provision that they can 
he closed by a majority vote. 

Material distributed to the 
members of the committee included 

a list of 'terms of reference' or topics 
for investigation. Topics include stu- 
dent and staff attitudes towards the 
New Programme, the role of the 
fourth year, and the aims of un- 
dergraduate education in arts and 

Others include the role of the 
colleges, part-time studies and the 
process of curriculum decision- 

Further topics may be discussed if 
the committee feels there is a need. 

The rest of the committee meeting 
centred on suggestions as to how 
opinions would be solicited and what 
terms of reference would be 

After a lengthy discussion it was 
tentatively decided, to solicit views 
in writing from all aspects of the 
university community. 

The committee also decided, 
again, tentatively, to use polls and 
surveys lo gather opinions from full 
and part-lime students, faculty and 
alumni. In an interview after the 

meeting Bob Anderson, one of the 
three undergraduate representatives 
on the committee, commented on 
the first meeting. 

"I'm sceptical about the time 
allotted lo the committee," he said. 
'Ml seems lo me unnecessary to push 
it this hard because any substantial 
change can't be implemented by the 
fall or 1974." 

"More time," he said "is needed 
on the report but one has to work 
within the deadlines that have been 

Anderson concluded, "I'm 
relatively pleased with the way 
things are going." 

The next meeting is scheduled for 
Tuesday al 4 pm in the council room 
of ihe Pharmacy Building, at Huron 
and Russell. Topics to be discussed 
will include the surveys and what 
terms of reference will be in- 
vestigated first. 

Wright Commission repor 
to be released on time 

The final report of the Commission on Post-Secondary Education 
will be completed and released as scheduled, Vincent Kelly, a member 
of the commission, told The Varsity on Saturday. 

Known by the name of it's former chairman, Doug Wright, the draft 
report issued last winter recommended, among other things, that 
students pay a substantially higher proportion of the costs of their 

Kelly reported that no unexpected delays have been encountered in 
drawing up the final draft. Any slowdowns so far have been strictly 

Public hearings on the commission's recommendations "dragged 
out until March and some members of the commission were absent 
during the summer months, according to Kelly. However, he said, the 
report is presently being rushed through to meet the proposed deadline 
nf this fall, probably late October. 

A spokesman for the Department of Universities and Colleges 
confirmed that the final report is scheduled to be released on time. 

Exclusion of women from 
Catholic ministry not 
objected to at St. Mike's 


An informal poll of women at a St. Michael's 
College residence indicated most are completely in- 
different or only vaguely object to Pope Paul's edict 
excluding women from the Catholic ministry. 

The pope's move last week was seen as a rebuke to 
iberals in the church, in order to preserve what he 
labeled a "venerable tradition" 

Many of the Catholic college's women-in Loretto 
College had not even heard of the edict, although it 
received much publicity in the media 

The edict "doesn't matter to me," said a first year 
student who refused to give her name. "The pope's too 
separated from the masses." 

Another student, when told of the edict, objected to 
the pope s decision. 

"I think women should be allowed to do anything 
they like in the church," she said. However she too did 
not want to be named. 

The only student interviewed who was familiar with 
the edict and spoke with any kind of conviction about it 
agreed with the Pope. Nancy Walla (SMC II) who 

considers herself to be a devout Catholic, felt for 
"religious reasons" that the Pope was correct in 
continuing the exclusion of women from the ministry. 

"Christ, by choosing men for his apostles, chose men 
lo be the ministers in his church", she stated. "Since it 
was Christ's decision, I don't think that we have the 
right to change it." 

She believed that since the church was structured 
solely upon the word of Christ, to drastically revise the 
order of the church is to deprive it of its logic. 

In contrast the nuns interviewed did not lake this 
authoritarian view. 

One said, with considerable asperity, that she felt 
"very strongly" about the pope's decision, but was 
unwilling to elaborate or give her name. 

Sister Frances Nims very soft spokenly affirmed that 
she was "neither alarmed by, or indignant at the pope's 
decision". She added that il was a "sociological thing" 
and a "temporary state of affairs". 

Nims also asserted that the women at St. Michael's 
were "not discouraged" by what they considered to be a 
decision which only "reflects the present situation" in 
the church.

Blues offence lacking in 24-7 loss 

Ottawa trounces Blues 

The Blues keep to the ground with draw plays, such as this, which where thwarted by the excellent defensive manoeuvres of the Ottawa Gee-Gees. 


Precision play and good 
breaks earned the Ottawa Gee- 
Gees a 24-7 victory over the host 
U of T Varsity Blues Saturday. 

Ottawa combined a consistent 
ball-control offence and a stingy 
defence to end Blues home 
record of no losses in the past 
three seasons. Although the 
Blues never gave up, -as ex- 
emplified by the work of the 
team's linebackers, they were 
plagued by inexperience and in- 
juries al key positions. 

The game was won and lost in 
the third quarter. Ottawa out- 
scored the Blues 17-7 in the 
quarter. Ottawa quarterback 
Dan Smith directed a 
predominantly aerial attack, and 
a loose Varsity defensive 
backfield was unable to cope 
wilh it. 

A key pass from Smith 
through the hands of Varsity 
back Doug Ball hit Jeff Avery, 
to bring Ottawa into field goal 
range. Neil Lumsden's field goal 
attempt from Toronto's 37 yard 
line was good. 

Toronto came back to score 
on their next series. Cor Doret 
turned what appeared to be an 
innocent off-lackle play into a 
65-yard touchdown run. This put 
Varsity on the scoreboard for 
the first and only time in the 

At this point the Blues 
appeared to be getting on track. 
However, Ottawa quickly 

snuffed out any Toronto hopes 
by scoring on the next series. 

The drive hinged on Ottawa 
quarterback Smith who 
scrambled for a first down, and 
then threw to Bill McNeely for 
another important first down. 
The drive was completed by a 
touchdown pass to flanker Barry 
St. George. Lumsden then con- 
verted to give Ottawa a ten point 

Ottawa's second touchdown 
of the quarter came off of a 
Henry Tobias fumble. This set 
up the Gee-Gees on the Blues 16- 
yard line. Smfth wasted no time 
in setting up Jeff Avery for the 
six points, taking advantage of 
Blues loose pass coverage. 

Varsity tried to mount a 
comeback in the fourth quarter, 
but was slopped by Ottawa's 
omnipresent defence. A very 
strong Ottawa pass-rush 
harrassed Toronto's aerial- 
attack quarterback Dunkley, 
who was unable to find his dow- 
nfield receivers. The harass- 
ment forced him to go to the 
short passes. Although Dunkley 
completed 11 out of 13 passes in 
the final quarter, they only 
resulted in short yardage. 

The Gee-Gees successfully 
contained Toronto for the rest of 
the game. Defensive back Ron 
Armstrong stopped the Blues on 
two occasions, recovering one 
fumble and picking off an 

In the first half of Saturday's 
match, Ottawa outplayed 

Toronto chiefly on the power 
running of fullback Neil 
Lumsden. The Gee-Gees es- 
tablished their running game, 
going up the middle. The Blues 
defence was unable to contain 

Smith successfully took to the 
air in the second quarter. He hit 
Barry St. George to put Ottawa 
into Toronto territory. Lumsden 
then brought the Gee-Gees down 
to the 14-yard line where Smith 
again connected with St. George 
for the touchdown. 

Blues offence came in spurts 

in the first half. When they first 
took possession Dunk ley 
scrambled for 22 yards. 
However, the only other close 
play was a screen pass to run- 
ning back Libert Castillo which 
he almost broke for a 

Blues take on Ottawa's 
crosstown rivals, the Carleton 
Ravens next Saturday in 

Blue Notes: Blues Walt Dudar 
was shaken up in the third 
quarter, but finished the game.... 
Barry Wagdin of Toronto suf- 

fered a concussion in the first 
quarter, which detracted from 
the team's passing attack... Neil 
Lumsden (Ottawa) and Libert 
Castillo (Toronto) both spent 
their high school days at 
Northern Secondary, Toronto.... 
Honourable mention to Blues' 
linebackers Guido Iantorno, 
Alex Markobrada, Hartley 
Stern, Rob Bloxham and to Gee- 
Gees Neil Kumsden, Dan Smith, 
Barry St. George, and Paul 
Kilger for fine efforts... In other 
games this weekend, it was 
Lutheran 27, York 7; Western 
31, Guelph 8. 

Rugby Blues lose 22-1 5; 
RMC in better condition 


Superior conditioning led RMC Redmen to a narrow 
22-15 win over the University of Toronto Rugby Blues 

An inexperienced Blues team was unable to 
overcome a narrow 7-6 half-lime deficit.. Even though 
the team gave a promising display of skill and 
determination, it included only three veterans from last 

The first half of the game was evenly contested in 
both scrums and lineouts, with RMC scoring an 
unconverted try and a penalty goal. The Blues 
responded with two penalty goals by newcomer Rick 

In the second half RMC look advantage of their 
excellent physical fitness. Skillfully placed kicks by 
their standoff and inside centre moved the game rapidly 
up and dbwn the field. By the end of the game, a tired 
Toronto team had only been able to add 9 points to 
their score. 

Roger Wright scored the season's first try after 
strong rucking by the Blues forwards near the RMC 
goal line. Rick Hodder converted, and shortly 
thereafter added a third penalty goal. RMC managed 
two converted trys and a field goal. 

In spile of the losing score, coaches McClements, 
Nankiville, and Wynn feel the team shows promise for 
the seven remaining league games. 

Blue seconds fell before a strong RMC second team 
in a game that was a repitition of the first match, The 
Blues played well in the first half and led narrowly at 
half-time, but the RMC cadets' conditioning carried 
the day in the second half. 

Veteran Dave Palmer with his strong scrum play led 
an interesting melange of old salts and absolute 
neophytes. Newcomer Richard Brookes gave a strong 
performance and scored a first-half try. 

The Blues host Trent University's teams in two 
games at 1 pm next Saturday. Practice will continue 
during the coming week at 5 pm on the back plavine 


Army spies on Quebec unionists 


Enraged Quebec labor leaders bitterly denounced the 
secret report compiled by the Canadian army on the political 
activities of trade union militants opposed to the Trudeau and 
Bourassa regimes. 

The dossier was released Monday night by the Parti 

Qucbecois executive members Rene Lesvesque, Pierre Marois 
and Dr. Camille Laurin. 

Marcel Pepin, president of the 220,000-strong 
Confederation des syndicats nationaux said the report was 
designed "to discredit the CSN in the eyes of English- 
Canadians, to elect liberal candidates in the federal election 

Few students turned out for a demonstration at Slmcoe Hall. They called for the remaining charges to be dropped. 

and to prevent the central committee (of the CSN) from 
organizing the civil service". 

This report about the activities of the CSN "which are 
public and known to everybody, obviously is intended to 
depict us as a secret and subversive organization, Pepin 

"As in October 1970, he continued, the federal 
government is trying to spread fear." 

The report, said Pepin, was worded in a similar manner 
to a document compiled by the CSN's rival union federation, 
the Confederation des syndicats democratiques. 

"Here is another example of the association between the 
three Ds {Dalpe, Dion and Diagle — the leaders of the CSD), 
the Liberal Party, and the Canadian army," asserted Pepin 

Pepin was referring to the fact that the Quebec Liberal 
government recently granted certification to the CSD in a 
sitting of the National A«=*mblv 

He denied that the information in the army's dossier was 
accurate and ridiculed the suggestion that the CSN and its 
Common Front allies, the Federation des travailleurs du 
Quebec (FTQ) and the Corporation des Enseignants du 
Quebec (CEQ) would form a labor party to contest the 1974 
Quebec provincial election. 

FTQ, president Louis Laberge joined the chorus of labor 
voices denouncing the report. He said that it is "scandalous" 
that the army would devote its resources for the purposes of 
spying on trade unionists. 

But, the most inflamed statement was issued by PQ 
leader Lesvesque. He denounced it as "repugnant and 
ridiculous at the same time. 

"Such activities are usually carried out by military 
regimes in occupied territories, but they are rather surprising 
in peacetime and in a country supposedly under the rule of 
law, added the PQ chief. He described Mobile Command as a 
"mini Gestapo". 

Neither Lesvesque nor the other members of the PQ 
executive would disclose how the document fell into their 
hands, but a Montreal political analyst told The Varsity that 
it may have been released by an officer of the Quebec City- 
based Van Deuxieme Regiment. 

The report was drafted by the Mobile Command units of 
which occupied Quebec during the 19J0 October crisis. The 
army claimed yesterday that it is intended for internal use 
only and was not to be submitted to the Trudeau government 
as a research paper. 

OFS calls for provincial strike referendum 


The Ontario Federation of 
Students yesterday announced a 
province-wide referendum to seek 
support for a second-term fee strike 
in most Ontario universities. 

The referendum to be held on 
October 1 1 and 12, will ask students 
if they will support witholding tui- 
tion fees in January to protest the 
government's tuition fee increases 
and changes in the Ontario Student 

Awards Program. In addition, it 
threatens a full fee strike in 1973-74 
if "further detrimental changes" to 
OSAP are announced. 

The referendum will involve 
100,000 students in member un- 
iversities, including graduate 
students. Similar votes will be taken 
in non-member universities, such as 
the University of Ottawa, which 
withdrew from the OFS in dis- 
agreement over the OFS's cautious 

approach to the fee increase. 

Eric Miglin, OFS executive 
member in charge of press relations 
and U of T SAC president, told a 
press conference that the issue was 
much larger than just protesting the 
fee hikes. 

Accessibility to post-secondary 
education for all income groups is 
also at stake, he said. He feels tht fee 
hikes, along with shifts in the loan 
ceiling of the awards program are 

Registrar warns Law, Medicine 
may not accept Innis courses 


Innis College registrar David King has warned 
students enrolled in Medicine and Law that some 
courses offered by Innis may not be accepted by the 
professional faculties. 

Rumours to this effect have been circulating 
around the campus for some time. Last week King 
visiicd several classes to caution students that Innis and 
some sociology courses may not be accepted as credits. 

The rumours have resulted in Arts and Science 
Dean Bob Greene calling a meeting of registrars and 
undergraduate secretaries in the near future. The 
meeting will discuss the whole problem of getting 
accurate information to the student about admissions, 
whatever that information is, says Greene . 

The meeting was requested by Medicine Dean of 
Admissions J.W. Steiner, after Innis College Principal 
Peter Russell indicated to Steiner his concern that Innis 
and other courses would be given less weight than other 
arts courses by the faculty when admissions were being 

Russell told The Varsity that he had received some 
"intimations" from Innis students going into medicine 
that less weight would be given to what were deemed 
"Mickey Mouse" courses. These apparently included 
Innis College courses. 

Since then, rumours have spread, and King has 
said that all Innis courses, some sociology and classics 
courses, and other suspected "Mickey Mouscrs" may 
not be accepted as credit by some or even all of the 
professional faculties. 

Law dean Martin Friedland denied that his faculty 
was not accepting certain courses offered by Arts and 


He said that as far as he knew there was no 
subslance in the rumours. 

Dean of Medicine, A.L. Chute says the 
requirements for admission to medicine have not been 
changed. He said that "Mickey Mouse" courses, "if 
there arc any", would be so designated by the Arts and 
Science faculty, not by Medicine. Only then would 
courses be weighted. 

Medicine's dean of admissions, Steiner "doesn't 
normally talk to students", his secretary said. She 
added, however, that Steiner told Russell courses would 
be weighted only if it "comes down to the crunch, if 
everything else is equal" between two applicants. 

Dean Greene says he shares Russell's concern that 
Medicine may not count some courses offered by arts 
and science. 

Chairman of Sociology Irving Zeitlin hasn't heard 
any stories that sociology courses won't be accepted. 

According to Russell, there is no definite list of 
courses suspected by Medicine and Steiner "certainly 
didn'l name any" (courses). 

Any department's courses could be suspect, he 
added because "we don't have a monopoly on Mickey 
Mouse courses." 

Mng said that Innis "had a feeling all along" that 
there may be problems because of the nature of Innis 

Innis courses are generally unstructured anu 
experimental, often with students doing their own 
projects for the whole year. This has sometimes led to 
charges that they are "soft" courses. 


"At stake is the very future of 
post-secondary education in the 
province," he said. 

The vote will be proceeded by a 
three-week intensive information 
campaign, and a day of province- 
wide study sessions, seminars and 
teach-ins to inform students and the 
public of the issues surrounding the 

Miglin said this was necessary, as 
the students themselves are not fully 
aware of what is involved in the 

SAC feels that without the 
cooperation of college councils- in 
organizing the students to vote, it 
will be a disaster. 

Although past referendums have 
met with little support, Miglin said, 
he feels this one will attract support 
due to the direct monetary effect of 
the proposals on each student. 

"The government feels our 
demands are just self-serving, and if 
[he students are not solidly behind 
this, ihey may feel they can walk all 
over us," said Miglin. 

Students have already shown wide 
support across Ontario for the . 
strike, Miglin asserted. Unofficial 
reports indicate that between 70 and 

90 per cent of their students paid 
their fees in installments. An un- 
official SAC survey at U of T put 
Ihe number at 70 per cent. 

Miglin says there is staff and 
administration informal support as 
staff members would be put in a 
"difficult position" by giving en- 
dorsing publicly the nrotest. 

However, as SAC vice-president 
John Helliwell has admitted before, 
the real reason for the OFS actions 
is to demonstrate to the Ontario 
government that students are con- 
cerned about these issues. Rollbacks 
of the fees hikes and OSAP changes 
are not expected, but it is hopea mat 
future such actions will be 

The ballot will seek yes or no 
answers to three questions. 

Do you support demands made 
by the OFS/FEO to the Govern- 
ment of Ontario? 

Will you support witholding your 
tuition fees in January if OFS/FEO 
negotiations with the Government of 
Ontario are unsuccessful? 

Would you support witholding all 
of your 1973-74 tuition fees if the 
Government of Ontario announces 
further detrimental changes in the 
Ontario Student Awards Program? 

Day care's tomorrow 

The university's top governing body, the Governing 
Council, meets at 4:30 Thursday afternoon in Medical Sciences 
3153 to consider its day care policy. 

According to a proposal being sent to the council as 
information by its Internal Afairs Committee and Executive 
Committee, a university-run day care centre, rejected in its 
current form by both of the existing university day care centres, 
would be established in the club house behind the old 
Meteorology Building on Devonshire Street, displacing the 
Campus Co-operative Day Care Centre Number 2 now 
occupying the building. 

Students, support staff, and teaching staff should attend the 
meeting to let their elected representatives know how they feel 
^bout the issue.

Subcommittee gets Robarts headache 


The power to determine whether 
undergraduates will have access to the new 
$45 million John P. Robarts Research 
Library will be assumed by a sub-committee 

of the Academic Affairs Committee of the 
Governing Council. 

Members of the Academic Affairs 
Committee yesterday rejected with little 
debate university vice-president and provost 
Don Forster's recommendation that the 1 com- 

mittee only be advisory to him. 

However Forster along with chairman 
R.M.H. Shepherd, classics professor at UC 
and student vice-chairman Norma Grindal, 
will present recommendations to the com- 
mittee on October 5 on the composition of the 

U of T president John Evnas, 
Scarborough principal Ralph Campbell 
and Scarborough controller Gus Harris 
yesterday officially opened a major new 
building at Scarborough College. 

The new building is officially phase 2A 
of the college building program. It consists 
of about three quarters academic and 
office space, and one quarter recreational 
facilities. Previously, there were no indoor 
athletic facilities at Scarborough,- only 
outdoor courts and playing fields. 

The inside of the building has not yet 

Scar's new building opened 

been finished. 

The academic portion of the building 
consists of 24 seminar rooms. There are 
also offices, lounges, and a cafeteria. 

The recreational portion, 40,000 square 
Teet or the total 167,000 in the building, 
feature is a flexible gymnasium that can be 
adapted for volleyball, tennis, badminton 
and basketball. 

Phase 2B ol the building program will be 
the construction of a library building. The 
library is at present housed in the first 

building in temporary quarters. 

The Scarborough student council, 
moved by the apparent need for an ade- 
quate library building and lack of action 
on the part of the administration, has 
requested $10 million from Seagram's 
Distillers to privately fund the library.

Campbell are in the foreground. Peeking

chairman Malim Harding, with vice-

Rekindles student Interest 

Stacks committee is reactivated 


Following a march to Simcoe Hall 
yesterday, an informal committee developed 
plans to re-kindle student interest in the open 
stocks issue and to protest charges laid last 
spring against four demonstrators who oc- 
cupied Simcoe Hail. 

The committess's major concern is to 
build support for those who will come to trial 
next Tuesday. 

Tom McLaughlin, one of the four, 
asserted that two of the trials will be political, 
that the charges of obstruction and assault 
laid by the police falsely reflect the true issues 
behind the arrests. He defined the real issues, 
as the university's "elitism", its identification 
of property belonging to the public as its own, 
and the question of limits of protest. 

To present these issues to the court 
McLaughlin and Bill Getty intend to conduct 
their own defences. The committee hopes to 
influence students to attend the trial to show 
their support, for the defcndents. 

McLaughlin stated that such a show of 
support will validate his defence and may lead 
to a more favourable judgment. 

The committee also intends to demand 
that the administration use its offices to have 
the charges dropped, as Acting President Jack 
Sword promised it would do last spring. 

The arrests were made in the break-up of 
the first occupation supporting open access to 
the new John Robarts library. While the 
university did stop the charges of tresspassing 
against the 19 involved, the more serious 
charges were not removed. 

Facing a charge of assaulting police are 
Getty, Mark Goldblatt, and Randi Reynolds. 
McLaughlin and Goldblatt are charged with 

obstructing police. 

Although the march was joined by only a 
small number of people the organizers 
remained optimistic. McLaughlin said that 
the open stacks issue last year began with a 
similar small nucleus of people, the Open 
Stacks Committee, who developed support 
throughout the campus. 

But by appearances at least, yesterday's 
demonstration was an anemic one. A Sid 
Smith rally was attended primarily by radical 
campus groups. Choams and McLaughlin 
made short speaches summarizing the history 
of the library access issue and the meaning of 
the trial. 

A group of thirty then marched to Simcoe 
Hall carrying posters and shouting slogans 
such as "Open the stacks". 

Two demonstrators were chocsn to enter 
Simcoe Hall to present their case to the 

The were stopped at the doors by U of T 
police, who said a day care delegation had 
already been granted an audience. While 
other students periodically entered Simcoe 
Hall without difficulty, the demonstrators 
were kept out. 

Questioned later, the police sergeant who 
had barred the protesters said vaguely that the 
decision had not been his own. He would not 
give any indication from whom the orders 

One short flurry of excitement occurred 
when U of T vice-president Alex Rankin 
rushed past the demonstrating students. 

When they called out to ask what the 
university intends to do about the charges he 
smiled, turned his head away and said "I 

High school students end strike 

PETERBOROUGH (CUP) — A series of 
rotating strikes by Peterborough high school 
students has been called off, after their 
teachers reached a tentative contract settle- 
ment with the Peterbourough Country Board 
of Education yesterday. 

The strikes began as a full-scale walk-out 
September 1 1 to protest a work-to-rule cam- 
paign by teachers, which had been depriving 
students of normal extra curricular activities 
since the begninning of the school year. 

About 3,000 of an estimated student 
population of 7,400 joined the city-wide 
strike, which was shifted to a rotating basis 

subcommittee. Forster's earlier recommenda- 
tion had been that only four students sit on a 
12 member body. 

This nominating committee will also 
suggest specific persons to sit on the 

The new committee would take over the 
policy function of the now defunct Library 
Council which last year turned down student 
demands for open access to the stacks at the 
Robarts library. 

This action eventually led to the bitter 
confrontation of last March when students 
occupied Simcoe Hall three times as their 
demands for open access were repeatedly 
denied by the administration and the now 
defunct Senate. A compromise reached 
during the second occupations failed to be 
ratified by the Senate. 

As the policy now stands,' automatic 
access remains a privilege for graduate 
students and faculty. Undergrads will line up 
for slack passes to be granted on the basis of 
"academic need. The definition of academic 
need was left to the Library Council now to be 
superceded by the subcommittee. 

The Academic Affairs Committee also 
discussed prosals by Shepherd on the power of 
the committee and its relationship to the 
faculty and college councils. 

Shepherd recommended that power be 
delegated to the various faculty and college 
councils so that they will continue to operate 
as autonomous bodies. However he also said 
the committee should scrutinize all decisions. 

Shepherd's paper, which will be discussed 
further at the October 5 meeting, 
recommends that the Academic Affairs com- 
mittee have ultimate power over all academic 
matters in the university, but that "various 
faculties colleges and shools be given a 
reasonably high degree of flexibility in their 

However "all changes or new proposals 
with respect to curriculum regulations, and 
general policy and practice should be referred 
to the committee." 

Forster and chairman Shepherd will play 
powerful roles under the recommendations, 
having wide powers to determine the agenda 
and what matters will be referred to the 
committee for ratification. 

York builds 
while U of T 
cuts day care 

when student leaders realized they could not 
sustain a general strike. In the final stages, 
student council representatives were planning 
to run their own extra-curricular activities, 
rather than continue the strikes. 

Todays agreement was reached after more 
than seven hours of negotiations. The 
proposed settlement will be presented to 
teachers today, but they will not vote on the 
contract until at least Thursday. 

Meanwhile, a work-to-rule slowdown by 
Ottawa high school teachers continues with 
students considering further strike action 
after a one-day walkout last Friday. 

In contrast to U of T's proposed 50 day 
care places, York University has responded to 
an apparent need by planning a 150-place 
centre for next September. 

York's centre already accommodates 65 
Children, while the proposed U of T centre on 
Devonshire Place will actually reduce the 
number of places available in university-aided 
centres. The occupied Denvonshire Campus 
Co-Op centre, together with the St. Andrew's 
Day Nursery (which must move from its 
present location) already have a total of 49' 
children eligible for the new centre. In addi- 
tion, each has many others, who because their 
parents are merely from the surrounding 
community and not directly connected to the 
university, are not eligible. 

Maria de Wit, a spokesman for the York 
parents, says that the university plans to pay 
for about half the construction costs of the 
building, while the other half plus the 
operating costs must be born by the parents. 
By combining day care with academic ac- 
tivities within the centre, York vice-president 
Bill Small says the university will be eligible 
for government formula financing grants. 

De Wit says the proposal allows the parents 
to control policy at the centre, again in 
contrast to U of T's proposal, which would set 
up an advisory board half composed of 
parents, with extremely limited powers. 

At present, York's temporary centre is run 
day-to-day by seven full-time staff and three 
parent co-ordinators.Once a month, a general 
meeting of parents sets policy. 

However, a portion of the centre will be 
alotted to commercial day care, for parents 
who do not wish to become involved in the 
running of the centre. It will be more expen- 
sive than the parent-run section. 

U of T's Internal Affairs Committee of 
the Governing Council rejected a report 
recommending that the university support 
more than one kind of day care.

Who should university's day care policy serve? 

Tomorrow afternoon, the Governing Council's 
Internal Affairs Committee will try to sneak through its 
controversial report establishing an unwanted 
daycare centre on he premises now occupied by 
Campus Co-operative Day Care Centre Number 2. 

The committee's plan, which would displace the 
Devonshire day care centre for a university- run cen- 
tre, was to quietly shove their report through the 
Governing Council as a matter of Information rather 
than introducing recommendations on which the 
council would have the opportunity to vote. 

Manouevre strategist Paul Cadarlo, student 
chairman of the committee, reasons that the specific 
proposals do no more than Implement the general 
policy adopted by the council at Its last meeting and 
do not require full council consideration. 

This Is not the case. Although August 31 motio ns 

intentionally sidestep recognizing the children and 
parents occupying the Devonshire site, they do not 
blueprint a centre where parental control In Its day-to- 
day operations would be minimal. The committee's 
proposals create this type of centre, the antithesis of 
everything for which the Campus Co-op people have 
Deen working! 

It's true that the St.Andrew's Day Care people, 
who operate the other centre serving the university 
community, do not endorse as much parental control 
as the Campus Co-op does. But, the solution to this 
impasse is not to dictate that Campus Co-op children 
and parents cannot receive the kind of day care they 
want, but to offer the university community a choice of 
approaches that was the recommendation of the 
university-established Day Care Advisory Board, but 
Internal Affairs rejected It. (An earlier editorial has 
dealt with some of the probable reasons leading to 

this decision.) 

And, St. Andrew's in a letter published on page 5 
of today's Varsity, clarify their position, explaining that 
they too find the Internal Affairs proposal 

One starts to wonder who the new policy Is 
desgined to serve: the consumers of the service or the 

Students, support staff, and progressive teaching 
staff should attend today's Governing Council meeting 
to let their representatives know that the proposed day 
care solution Is no solution. 

And, governors should seriously question the 
propriety of the committee and the Executive Com- 
mittee trying to get the proposals adopted without 
adequate council debate.

Gov't snoopers characterize police state 

When the Trudeau government 
turned Quebec into a police state during 
the 1970 Quebec crisis many Canadians. It 
themselves believe that the suspension 
of civjl rights and the dawn raids on the 
government's political opponents were a 
passing occurrence demanded by the 
gravity of the situation. 

They were wrong. All that had 
happened was that the shroud of secrecy 
under which government agents spy on 
dissidents and activists could be 
momentarily lifted. Indeed, because of 
the mass scale on which the 1970 
Quebec inquisition proceeded, It would 
have been difficult to have kept the large 
scale raids secret. 

But, most Canadians, unaffected 
by the ravages of the government's un- 
founded attack, couldn't or wouldn't 
believe what was happening. And, with 
the passage of a little time, they found it 
easy to forget all about it. 

Sunday's release of secret defence 
departmnt intelligence files on top 

Quebec labor leaders may case them to 

think again. For once again, the govern- 
ment, unintentionally, has been forced to 
show its hand, forced to prove that, 
despite all the myths we hear about living 
in a really democratic country, 
government opponents here are as 
practically limited In their freedom of 
activity by (government surveillance) as 
detractors claim the communist coun- 
tries are. 

Describing the internal affairs of the 
Quebec-based, activist Confederation ot 
National Tade Unions, the government 
snoopers accused the CNTU of asslstlna 
"various separatist and communist 
elements". That may well be. But, since 
when is the non-violent political activity 
of any organization the realm of govern- 
ment Inquiry In a supposed democracy? 

What we do know tor tact is that the 
CNT and its leaders have been among 
the forefront of Quebec activism and 
thus by definition the harshest critics of 
the policies of the Trudeau and Bourassa 
governments. Since Trudeau is fond of 
denigrating his opponents by claiming 
they lack popular support. It's Important 
to recall that the CNTU, the Quebec 

Teachers Corporation and the Quebec 
Federation of Labor as the Common 
Front mobilized thousands of Quebec 
workers this spring to nearly paralyze 
Quebec when they were pressing their 
contract demands. 

To suggest that the Common Front 
then enjoyed and its one-time con- 
stituent members now enjoy broad sup- 
port cannot be debatable. It's equally 
obvious that the governments which pre- 
tend to represent the people of Quebec 
are not prepared to allow the Quebecois 
to determine their own destiny ad have 
stepped up their surveillance of 

Canadians cannot repeat their 1970 
complacency. They must demand an end 
to the army's spying on Innocent citizens. 

The Quebec labor caper Is 
undoubtabry Just the tip of the spy Iceberg, 
an Integral element of the web of fntrlgue 
and deception practised by government 
agences on all levels. (A Globe and Mail 
report on last week's clash outside the 
Western Guard meeting detailed the 
presence of police surveillance teams 

photographing the protestors. And, a 
police official told that paper's reporter 
that he recognized many of those pre- 
sent from mug shots taken at earlier 

What this Incident illustrates Is the 
desperate struggle by those in power to 
repress reform and change from within 
the system, let alone from without. 

Varsity editorial policy. is approved 
at production day staff meetings. It Is 
shaped within the guidelines set by a 
general policy staff meeting, held In late 
summer, ana the weakly staff meetings. 

Varsity editorials do not necessarily 
represent the personal opinions of the 

The existence of the staff or 
editorial collective. In which all staff 
memoars who have demonstrated their 
commitment to the paper, have an equal 
voice, does not presuppose that 
paper's staff is politically monolithic. 
However, it does assume that the paper's 
published editorial policy posiions 
represents its official editorial policy.

The Varsity 5 

57. Andrew's doesn't 
like admin plan either 

Friday's Varsity states that 
university's day care plan has the ap- 
proval of St. Andrew's- University Day 
Nursery. This is incorrect. Moreover, 
there seems to be some misunderstanding 
as to the role St. Andrew's has played in 
the current day care situation. We would, 
like to acquaint you, first, with the part 
we have played in the past in day care in 
this university, secondly, with our role in 
urging the administration to formulate its 
current policy, and thirdly, with our 
feelings about that current policy. 

In I967 St. AndrewVUniversity 
Day Nursery was established as a day 
care centre serving, mainly, children of 
University of Toronto graduate students. 
Rent-free space was provided by St. 
Andrew's United Church, and the 
renovations were paid for by the Univer- 
sity of Toronto. In January of this year 
St. Andrew's Church informed us that 
their building would be torn down within 
the year and that we would, therefore 
have to seek new accommodation. We 
made a long and thorough search in the 
general area of the university and were 
completely unable to find any suitable 

space. In April, therefore, we approached 
the administration requesting that we be 
provided space in the university. We were 
willing to pay some rent for this space 
and to undertake the cost of renovations 
ourselves, since money had been set aside 
by our parents over the years for the 
relocation we knew would probably be 
necessary after our first five or six years 
of operation. 

Another proposal that had been 
made earlier to the administration came 
from the Department of Psychology. It 
requested that space be provided them fo 
child research facility, with the intention 
that St. Andrew's become that facility. 
Again, some rent was offered for his 
space. Both proposals those of St. An- 

drew's and the Psychology department 
were turned down because day care had 
become an important issue in light of 
requests for space that were coming from 
the Campus Co-op. In response to he 
occupation of the Devonshire building by 
the Campus Co-op and to our requests 
for help the administration first in- 
dicated, in May, its willingness to provide 
space and suppprt for day care on this 

A committee set up in July to study 
the situation made recommendations 
that were generally acceptable to both 
St. Andrew's and the Campus Co-op. 
During a series of meetings in July 
between our two day care centres it had 
become evident that our philosophies ot 
day care were so different as to make it 
impossible for a joint program to be 
set up. This was recognized by the com- 
mittee in its recommendation that 
separate facilities be offered to the two 
groups so that the two programs, both 
proven successful, could continue. The 
committee also recognized the greater 
ability of St. Andrew's to pay a large part 
of its own way. The administration, 
however, has chosen to ignore the 
recommendations of that committee for 
separate facilities. 

St. Andrew's did support a much 
modified version of the model for day 
care that was approved by the Internal 
Affairs Committee last week. It should 
be noted, however, that our proposed 
modifications were not accepted by that 
committee. The position taken by us 
then was that if there were to be only one 
day care centre our modified version of 
Model I would be the model that 
would be most acceptable to our 
parents. But we are absolutely opposed tc 
the model of day care finally accepted 
by the committee as well as the more 
general day care policy they approved. 

We have been offered something 
that is unacceptable to both of the groups 

now providing day care to the university 
community. You are aware of the Cam- 
pus Co-op's objections. Our own are as 
follows. First of all, we regret the waste 
that is involved in doing away with a 
successful and unique program. St. 
Andrew's has established a reputation for 
excellent day care, and there are very 
few, if any, private or co-operative day 
nurseries in the vicinity of the university 
that are able to match it. Secondly, the 
university's proposal will probably help 
only a few of or parents. Because of the 
fact that access to the 50 spaces provided 
will be on the basis ot financial and 
personal need, many of our graduate 
students will simply be too "rich" to 
compete with undergraduate and staff 
parents (although they are too poor to 
buy a house in the downtown area or pay 
$700 or $800 a month rent for suitable 
space). Thos who are not accepted into 
the university's centre simply have no 
place else to go that matches the quality 
of St. Andrew's. Third, it is extremely 
difficult to see how a program can be set 
up in the university's new day care centre 
that would be very appealing to both the 
kind of parents that would have been at- 
tracted to St. Andrew's and the kind that 
would have been attracted to Campus 

Certainly the Campus Co-op has 
little to gain from the university's new 
policy. We have probably less to gain. It 
is unfortunate that, with minimal 
assistance, we could have continued to 
provide a valuable service for at least one 
segment of the university community. 
We are glad the university has formally 
recognized the need for its involvement in 
day care, but we feel strongly that the 
particular policy it has formulated is 
wasteful because it does not make use of 
resources already available, and that it 
will certainly be of little benefit either to 
us or the Campus Co-op.

SA C Handbook 
sorry left left out 

In reply to Brian Mossop's 
letter about non-inclusion of leftist 
groups in ih Handbook, I wish to 
sincerely apologize for my negli- 
gence in this matter. 

A lot of the assembly of 
Handbook submissions from cam- 
pus groups was left to other people 
working on the book. It was my 
understanding that all the groups we 
could locate were contacted. I have 
checked and been assured that this 
was done, but unfortunately the 
contacts were mostly by phone and 
were not adequately recorded, so I 
cannnol demonstrate that the effort 
to conlacl leftist groups was as 
vigorous as the effort to contact the 
groups which were included. Cer- 
tainly, there are other campus 
groups which were not included 
because the member who was con- 
tacted and who assured us he would 
arrange for a submission failed to 
do so. 

Nonetheless, the overlooking of 
all leftist groups was inappropriate 
in a Handbook that was intended to 
reflect the diversity of campus opi- 
nion, and 1 apologize for not making 
a special effort to get submissions 
from leftist groups to ensure Ibetter 
balance in the Handbook.

Chairman dislikes 

Perhaps some clarification- 
regarding my position on the Arts 
and Science Union would be helpful. 
I have tried in the past to keep my 
criticisms private, as 1 am chairman 
□f the ad hoc steering committee; 
but now that I have been mentioned 
and my opposition cited, I guess I'd 
belter own up. 

I began the summer convinced 

that an Arts and Science Union was 
not only a constitu'ional necessity; I 
fell it would aid immensely the work 
of course unions, college education 
groups, and other stuenl groups 
within ihe faculty. I am no longer so 
convinced. An organized union, 
from my point of view shared, I 
might add, by a great number of 
people would amount to a middle- 
level bureaucracy, nothing more. 
The diversity of the faculty creates 
organizational problems no .co- 
ordinating unit can deal with; an 
organized, structured union by its 
own logic would create policy for 
such undertakings as course 
evaluations and participation on 
departmental committees. No 
representative body can avoid 

To be sure, co-ordination and 
aid in these undertakings were the 
intended functions of an Arts ad 
Science Union. But, we had con- 
ceived these matters to be the 
province of informal working grups. 
To create a governing body with 
elected presidents and executives 
would be to set up a monster; it 
would in no way aid such efforts, but 
would through frustration alone, 
perhaps attempt to bring these un- 
der its control. 

It seems clear to myself, and to 
d number of other concerned hacks, 
that a subcommittee of the Educa- 
tion Commission, with guaranteed 
autonomy, would facilitate informal 
contact among groups in the Arts 
Faculty without multiplying gover- 
ning bodies, executives, hired 
fieldworkers, and policy resolutions 
to the point of absurdity. 

I ought to add that this is in no 
way the opinion of the Arts and 
Science Steering Committee, nor 
the official policy of the St. Mike's 
Students' Union, nor the stand (not 
as-yel taken) of SAC or its Educa- 
tion Commission; and that it does 
not reflect on the energy or the 
quality of the work Phil Dack has 
done through the summer.

SA C tasters pick 
best Toronto pizza 

I wish to point out a grave 
oversight committed by Bill 
MacVicar in his article "Eat, 
drink, and be merry" in Monday's 
issue of The Varsity. 

Let me first point out that it is 
not my intention to criticize 
MacVicar on grounds of lack of 
comprehensiveness. For it was quite 
obvious that the reporter in question 
was not attempting to be com- 
prehensive in his treatment of 
Toront's gastronomica. And indeed 
one would and should not demand 
or expect comprehensiveness in such 
a matter! 

However, I do believe that the 
readers of The Varsity have a right 
to demand and expect throughness 
and taste! 

Now, I fully agree that New 
York Pizza House has a "tasty pie" 
indeed, it has a very "tasty pie". 
But, for MacVicar to refer to the 
-mentioned establishment's product 
as "the tastiest pie around" reveals 
not only his lack of experience and 
worldliness but also testifies to his 
ignorance in matters of campus 

If MacVicar had more 
thoroughly researched his article, he 
would have known that on Agust 10, 
1972, after months of extensive and 
costly research covering two con- 
tinents, the Education Commission 
of the SAC passed the following 
motion. "Posillipo Pizzeria makes 
the best pizza in Toronto". (For the 
information of editor and reader, 
Possillipo Pizzeria (531-5213) is 
located at 1140 Davenport (at 
Ossinglon). Though the location is, 
not overly convenient for most peo- 
ple, Posillipo Pizzeria does offer 
fast, reliable delivery). 

At the September 1 3 meeting of 
Council, the SAC accepted this mo- 
lion as official SAC policy! 

Now, [ grant you that the 
adoption of this important policy 
stand did not go entirely unopposed. 
Charles Vickery, SAC rep from the 
Faculty of Applied Science and 
Engineering, moved to table the 
minutes in question undoubtedly so 
as to allow himself the opportunity 
to research the matter more 
thoroughly an earlier motion to ta- 
ble so as to allow a pizza to be or- 
dered having been censuriously 
defeated. Though Vickery's motion 
failed when the policy was finally 
adopted, a number of oppositions 
were recorded. However, it should 
be pointed out that of those who vot- 
ed against the motion had had the 
opportunity to be seduced by the 
wicked charms of that tasty dish 
known so endearingly as a 
"Posillip pizza". 

I would further mention that 
any readers who are interested in 
pursuing the matter at greater 
length are cordially invited to the 
Arts and Science Conference to be 
held this Saturday in the Music 
Room of Hart House, where there 
will undoubtely be a proliferation of 
pizzas palpitatingly perfectly 
produced by the proprietors of the 
pizza palace known as "Posillipos". 

I trust that the oversight in 
MacVicar's article will be corrected. 
Dare to order: Dare to eat!

Loretlans do care 
about church role 

Spurred into reaction by David 
Wise's Varsity article of last Mon- 
day, we feel the need to question the 
definitely misleading headline as 
well as to clarify and express opinion 
on theissue he presents. 

While the article makes it fairly 
clear that only a few women of 
Lorelto College were informally 
polled, the headline, "Exclusion 
of women from Catholic ministry 

not objected to at St. Mike's, leaves 
(he casual reader with the distinct 
impression that the opinion is shared 
by the entire community of women 
here, not to mention men. 

Perhaps our first reaction to the 
decision in question was dismay at 
the apparent setback in defining the 
role of women in the Church, but 
like Sister. Frances Nims, quoted in 
the article, we recognize the 
sociological cause influencing the 
pope: namely, that the status of 
Latin women is among the lowest in 
the world. We fell that instead of 
prohibiting the bishops throughout 
the world from officially using 
women in any type of recognized 
ministry. Pope Paul should have 
given them the power to decide 
within their own dioceses the role 
and need for women in their 
geographical areas. Perhaps a 
greater awareness of the situation of 
women in North American nd 
elsewhere would have changed his 
decision in this regard. 

We can't agree, however, with 
those who hold "religious reasons' 
to be excuses for the continued 
exclusion of women on the altar. To 
those who do, we can only recomm- 
mend the book. What Every I 
Modern Catholic Believes About 
Women by Sister Albertus Magnus, 
which clearly and thoroughly 
presents the life-style and teachings 
of Jesus Christ as positive rein- 
forcements for the equality of

Wednesday. Septemb 


Avery Brundage, kingpin of the 
international sports establishment, 
recently told the assembled throngs at 
Munich that this year's Olympic Games 
had been subjected to what he called two 
vicious attacks. One, he said, was the 
threatened boycott by African states {and 
black American athletes) if white- 
supremecist Rhodesia was allowed to 
compete. The other was the chain of 
events that led to the deaths of the Israeli 
athletes. TV commentators covering the 
games expressed much shock that the 
'Olympic peace' had been shattered. And, 
there were ioud laments on all sides that 
'politics has Invaded sports'. 

One may of course wonder about the 
sort of mentality that equates a peaceful 
boycott against a racist regime with a 
commando action which leads to 11 
deaths. And, the people of Vietnam may 
be excused if, in the midst of the dally hail 
of American bombs and deaths, they 
wonder what the American news media 
mean when they say that the 'Olympic 
peace' has been shattered. Nor was there 
any 'Olympic peace' for the hundreds of 
student demonstrators who were simply 
rounded up and shot by Mexican troops 
at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. 

It's interesting to review the record of 
the sporting establishment that weeped 
such plentiful tears at Munich. Once 
before there was a German Olympics. 
And, then too, the Olympic kingpins 
charged that politics had invaded sports. 
The incidents which at that time sparked a 
mass movement in America to boycott the 
1936 Berlin games are eloquently 
described in Professor Richard Mandell's 
book The Nazi Olympics. At that time, the 
issue was whether Hitler was barring 
Jewish athletes from the German Olympic 

The American Olympic establish- 
ment repeatedly claimed that the Nazis 
weren't discriminating against Jewish 
athletes or, if they were, it was irre- 
levant. Eventually, as the movement to 
boycott the Olympics gathered momen- 
tum in America, they sent General Charles 
Sherrill (a member of the American and 
International Olympic committees) to 
Berlin to negotiate with the Nazis. Sherrill 
vigorously opposed the boycott and, upon 
his return, discussed the reasons for his 

7 went to Germany for the purpose 
of getting at least one Jew on the German 
Olympic team and I feel that my job is 
finished. As for obstacles placed in the 
way of Jewish athletes or any others in 
trying to reach Olympic ability, I would 
have no more business discussing that in 
Germany than it the Germans attempted 
to discuss the Negro situation in the 
American South or the treatment of the 
Japanese in California." 

He also claimed that he knew many 
Jews who opposed a boycott and who 
feared that it would »be overplaying the 
Jewish hand in America as It was 
overplayed in Germany before the pre- 
sent suppression and expulsion of the 
Jews were undertaken. The next day, 
Frederick Rubin, then Secretary of the 
American Olympic Committee announced 
his position' 

"German are not discriminating 
against Jews in their Olympic tryouts. The 
Jews are eliminated because they are not 
good enough as athletes. Why there are 
not a dozen Jews in the world of Olympic 

General Sherrill later appeared 
before the Italian Chamber of Commerce 
in New York and praised Mussolini as "a 
man of courage in a world of 
pussyfooters," adding, "I wish to God he'd 
come over here and have a chance to do 
that same thing." 

The president of the American 
Olympic Committee (and close colleague 
of Sherrill and Rubin) was Avery Brun- 
dage. He has remained at the top of the 
Olympic establishment ever since, and is 
presently head of the International Olym- 
pic Committee. He opposed the anti-Nazi 
boycott just as he was later to oppose the 
black boycott. He opposed exclusion of

rationale for this kind of thinking was 
given a few years ago by Homer p 
Babbidge, president of the University of 
Connecticut. "Our teams and our 
players", remarked Babbidge to the 
National Association of Collegiate Ahletic 
Directors, "by and large, are the^guys in 
the white hats they keep their hair cut 
short, they're clean, they're orderly, aware 
of the importance of law and order and 
discipline. The students and others who 
come to watch us play are the people who 
respect tradition and institutional pride..." 

Similarly, in a recent speech to the 
Touchdown Club of Birmingham 

American and Italian athletes take victory salute with German 
during "apolitical" 1936 Munich Olympics. 

A couple of years ago, paraphrasing 
the Duke of Wellington, the deputy editor 
of the London Sunday Telegraph, 
Peregrine Worsthorne, noted that what he 
called "the race of Imperial Men that built 
the British Empire" was formed on the 
playing fields of Eton and Harrow, the elite 
English prep schools. Peter Mcintosh in 
his able book Sport in Society notes 
that the militarized games like rugby 
that gained popularity during the re- 
naissance of British imperialism In 
the latter part of the nineteenth century 
"encouraged just those qualities of co- 
operation and conformity to the needs of 
the herd which were so much prized by a 
middle class which was establishing its 
power and Influence throughout the 

In our own increasingly turbulent 
era, there are many Important voices In 
the athletic establishment who look upon 
sports almost as a weapon of class war- 
fare. "To me", sais Washington State 
University football coach Jim Sweeney a 
couple of years ago, "football and athle- 
tics are a fortress that has held the wall 
against radical elements. I look for them 
to continue to play that same role". 
Speaking before a chapter meeting of the 

Alabama, in which he attacked critics of 
thn snorts establishment, vice-president 
Splro Agnew remarked that, "Sports all 
sports is one of the few bits of glue that 
holds society together..." But, whose con- 
ception of 'society'? And, where there is 
disagreement about which forces In 
society should predominate, how much 
does the present organization of 
American sport give support to one side 
of the argument over the other? What 
Berkeley sociology professor Harry 
Edwards calls the "plantation at- 
mosphere" of American sports with black 
athletes on the bottom and white officials 
and coaches on the top has already given 
rise to athletic strikes, boycotts and dis- 
ruptions at over 100 American colleges, 
as well as threatened boycotts at the last 
two Olympics . Oberlln athletic director 
Jack Scott says that a nationally promi- 
nent track coach told him that "unless" we 
can find a way to separate the decent 
Negroes from the troublemarkers and 
militants, we're going to stop recruiting all 

"Football is not a democracy," says 
University of Pittsburgh grid coach Carl 
DePasqua. "There's nothing to debate. 
The players can debate in political 

science class." Syracuse's Ben 
Schwartzwalder agrees. He says that, as 
coach, "you look upon yourself as a kind 
of benevolent dictator." 

Richard Nixon could hardly have said 
it any better. His press releases on Viet- 
nam constantly depict the war as a sort of 
football game, in which we are all ex- 
pected to give undying loyalty to our 
military team' and to our 'field generals" 
Defense Secretary William Laird 
described the blockade of Haiphong as 
operation linebacker.' And, Nixon in 
diplomatic communiques refers to himself 
as 'quarterback'. Presumably Americans 
should not disagree too loudly on Vietnam 
because, as in football, only the qurter- 
back talks in the huddle. 

On the other hand, when people like 
Olympic discus-thrower Olga Connolly 
start complaining about the 
repressiveness of the sporting es- 
tablishment, the coaches and writers 
complain that the athletes are becoming 

Back in the days when the jocks at the 
University of California, Columbia, and a 
score of other institutions were beating up 
student demonstrators, there was no 
great fear that the athletes were "political" 
Jim Bouton, in his book Ball Four, points 
out that as long as professional baseball 
players could be depend upon rabidly to 
support the Vietnam war, the army the 
generals, and the flag, no one in 
baseball's establishment worried about 
what they were saying or whether it was 

In 1 970, for the first time in history, the 
American Broadcasting Company (ABC) 
refused to televise the half-time show of 
the Holy Cross-Buffalo football game 
because it was "political". The Buffalo 
marching band had scheduled simulated 
formations of smoking factories and ex- 
ploding bombs and would play such "con- 
troversial" songs as "We shall overcome" 
and "Give peace a chance". A few weeks 
later, ABC and the NCAA proudly 
televised the half-time at the arny-navy 
game, complete with a squad of army 
Rangers who had just returned from an 
abortive raid on a North Vietnamese POW 
camp, and greetings from the Joint Chiefs 
of Staff. Nothing "political" about that. 

Similarly, when the two balcK 
American trackmen Wayne Collette and 
Vince Mathews were evicted from the 
Munich Olympics, many American 
sportswriters complained that it was 
because they were trying to make a 
political demonstration. This may well be 
true. But, the fact is that the playing of 
national anthems at an international spor- 
ting event that claims to be above politics 
is, in itself, a highly political act. The tact 
was then that Collette and Mathews were 
thrown out, not for anything they did or 
didn't do in the acutal Olympic com- 
petition, but because their casual 
behavior was regarded as an unwarranted 
interference in what amounted to a 
political demonstration by the in- 
ternational Olympic establishment. 

Nor is the Olympic competition itself 
all that apolitical. Though the actual 
athletic events themselves be as pure as 
the driven snow, when you introduce 
nationalistic tv commentators to root for 
their national teams, spend millions of 
dollars on build-up and promotion, fill the 
stands with thousands and thousands of 
fans (not to mention the multi-millions of 
tv watchers around the world), you end up 
with something which is so overblown and 
overpublicized that it becomes what the 
Roman emperors used to call bread and 
circuses for the masses.

In an apparent response to 
charges made by Alderman John 
Sewell about where his capaign 
funds came from in 1969, Rotenberg 
announced that he would not accept 
money from developers. 

Rotenberg claimed that his 
fund-raising "bagman", Dan Kert, 
of Kert Industrial Chemicals, has 
been directed not to accept any 
money that would prejudice or limit 
his action. 

Rotenberg is generally 
conceded to be the leader of the pro- 
development forces on City Council. 
He has consistently voted in favour 
of controversial developemnts 
against the wishes of community

Campus computer info system soon operational 


UofTINFO, a computer 
system which will disseminate in- 
formation to the whole university 
wilt be operational as soon as Finan- 
cial difficulties are ironed out, says 
SAC vice-president John Helliwell. 

The system was designed by 
Bill Smook, a U of T student, and 
SAC hopes to install terminals in 
public areas such as foyers, lobbies 
and lounges. 

UofTINFO will enable anyone 
within the university community wth

Frank Cunningham charged

the world's people to be the correct 
interpretation, should be dealt with 
as a legitimate alternative."

Students who wish to use the service 
must get in touch with SAC in order

There are two costs involved in 
the financing of UofTINFO, SAC is 
hoping Tor material support from 
IBM lo help cover the cost of ren-

supports the university in computor 
research and may decide to donate 
or rent the terminls at a reasonble 
rale. Helliwell claimed. SAC may, 
however, have to absorb the costs of 

the terminals for a trial period at 
approximately $100 per month. 

The second basic cost is 
computor lime. A report prepared 
by Helliwell states that an average 
individual session of 10 minutes costs 
$.50. At the level he claims the 
system is warranted, at 100 users per 
day. the cost per month would be

Governing Council may veto plan 

Med and Ed students will try to leave SAC. 


Two faculties, Medicine and 
Education, plan to try to withdraw 
from the Students' Administrative 
Council this year, according to their 
student presidents. 

However, these requests may 
run into difficulty at the Governing 
Council, which must approve all 

Motions put forward to the 
council by the Medical Society and 
the student union at the Faculty of 
Education to withdraw from SAC 
will probably be denied, according 
to SAC finance commissioner Vince 
De Angelo. 

The Governing Council only 
wants to deal with SAC, the 
Graduates' Student Union, and the 
Association of Part-time University 
Students, he maintained. 

Paul Cadario. chairman of the 
council's Internal Affairs Com- 
mittee, to which such requests must 
be submitted, said last night that he 
"has no knowledge that withdrawal 
motions) are even pending. There 

have been no applications since July" 
when the council came to office, he 

If requests were made, he 
indicated the committee would not 
deal with them until after Christ- 
mas, since withdrawals could not be 
effective until next year. 

Michael Ginsberg, president of 
the Medical Society states that his 
society's motion "is not very high on 
(the Governing Council's) priority 
list and probably won't be con- 
sidered for quite a while". However, 
"the society is still anxious to get 
out," he says. 

Disagreements with SAC over 
financial autonomy for local coun- 
cils and politics provoked mer'ical 
and Faculty of Education students to 
withdraw from SAC in referendums 
lust year. 

These were the same issues 
which prompted Eric MigHn, as 
president last year of the 
Engineering Society, to lead a fight

fees paid to SAC. SAC rejected the 

This year's society president, 
Scott Joliffe. savs the Engineerine 
Society "has scrappped the issue of a 
50 per cent rebate on SAC fees". 

Although Joliffe expects eacn 
council this year will receive a 

$4,000 rebate, he says "money isn't 
the only issue. They (SAC) haven't 
involved themselves in fantastic 
political isses." 

' Last year's president of the 
student union at the Faculty of Educa- 

tion. Christina Dobrowolski, says 
"the union received an unsual 
amount of co-operation during the 
past summer (from SAC)." 

However, they still wish > to

the school year will be able to do so

Accrding to Bob Baylee, a clerk 
at the provincial enumeration office 
for the municipality of Toronto, 
the only problem that faced the 
enumerators was mat students did 
not know if and how their parents had 
registered them.

to regsler to vote. 

To do this, you must write the 
Toronto assessment office at 222 
Yonge Street stating your year of 

birth, religion, residential status 
(owner, or permanent or temporary 
tenant), citizenship and sex. 

The voters lists will be posted on 
trees or telephone poles in local 
areas, probably 'not until at least late 
October. Baylle refused to even es- 
timate when this would be. 

If you discover on the posted 
lists that you have not been

By John Mc Murtry 

The following article analysis analyses 
football from a political, alternative, view- 
point By including the article in the Varsity 
we ffo not mean to indicate that It's 
contents are to be applied to Canadian 
intercollegiate football. We have little in- 
formation to indicate that this is so. 
However, we believe the comparison 
which McMurtry makes between the NFL 
and the CFL is, to some degree, valid. The 
article should not be tossed aside lightly, 
but deserves considerable attention. 

Comments by letter would be 

A few years ago, I played professional 

football I was a corner linebacker 

for a team called the Calgary Stampeders. 
The Stampeders, as well as the eight other 
teams lhat form the equivalent in Canada to 
the NFL, are much like any pro team in big 
— league football. Any difference between 
them and say, the Minnesota Vikings, is 
essentially thai they have some Canadian 
players, whereas the Vikings have none at all. 

Indeed, the similarities in this particular 
case are extensive when one considers that the 
Vikings* ex-quarterback Joe Kapp, their 
general manager Jim Finks and their coach 
Bud Grant all performed these functions in 
Canada (two of them for the Stampeders 
when I played) for longer than they've been 
with the Vikings. In short, professional foot- 
ball is much the same in principle and practice 
on both sides of the 49th parallel. 

Like most players I did not seek to 
become a pro from some personal quirk. I 
acted, rather, upon the dominant imperative 
of North American male culture, which is to 
show how tough and competitive you are. 

Recognizing lhat being a top dog in a 
violent game tent one much the same magic as 
packing a Tasl gun in Tombstone. 1 trained, 
weight-lifted and backed people down until I 
was a well- publicized fullback, being drafted 
by the pros. I made the team the only 
Canadian college player in my year to break 
into a starting lineup — essentially because 
I had developed the obsessional com- 
petitiveness and agile cunning required for 
success in any elitist structure. 

At first, I rarely reflected on these 
prerequisites of the game, but as time went on 

The tremendous rise in popularity of pro 
and college football in America since the 
second world war is a result of people not 
having anything on which to act out their 
aggressions during the cold war. 

the concealed became more and more 
manifest to me — lhat pro football was not so 
much a sport as a sick society's projection of 
itself into public spectacle. It now seems 
obvious to me that the increasingly popular 
Sunday contests -between sophisticated 
systems of big— .-men power - - the pro football 
games - - should not be viewed as mere 
weekend diversion buth rather as a growing 
religion, an idealization into morality play of 
the bellicose American way before a con- 
gregation of tens of millions. 

Support can be marshaled for this claim 
almost as soon as one pauses to look. To 
begin with, the first major principle of foot- 
ball is possession - - holding onto the desired 
object (lhe ball), protecting it by rule- 
governed violence from the other team. 
"Possession" the key to football: "private 
property" the key to our society; legalized 
violence lhe sanction of both. 

It is no accident. When one considers as 
well that the inevitable conclusion of such a 
game whether gridiron or social is monopoly 
by the mosl powerful, the analogy then 
becames more compelling. 

Bui the similarity does not end there. In 
football one must no only try to keep 
possession, one must also try to gain it from 
lhe other side. This is done, literally, by 
forcing the opponent off his territory, yard by 
yard, until he has nothing left. When that 
occurs, the scoring, side acquires abstract 
points, and the contest begins again. 

The likeness of this process to the 
capitalist law of increasing what is owned by 
outmaneuvering others of what they own and 
thereby gaining abstract assets called 
"money" is too obvious to comment on. In 
both "games", the goal is more and more 
abstract value, without upper limit or concern 
for the competitor. 

The role of the competitor is indeed 
interesting enough in both spheres. In fool- 
ball, the truly professional altitude Is not to 

Football — 

and what 
it means 

think of the opponent as a human being at all 1 
he is a "position" to be removed as efficiently 
as possible in order to benefit the team's 
corporate enterprise of gaining points. The 
mask over his face and the other protective 
equipment he wears reinforce this status of 
non-humanity: while if all that is not enough 
official fines for "fraternizing" with the other 
side diminish any points of contact that might 

Of course, one need hardly elaborate how 
this resembles life outside the stadium the 
business or political opposition as simply 
something which must be removed in order to 
secure corporate, part or national interests, 
whose representatives are generally in 
somelhing like a conventional coverall un- 
iform and head style, and with whose products 
or agents it is unwise to associate. The only 
difference is thai in football, the antagonism 
is overt. 

The circumstances and manner in which 
rootball is played are also suggestive. Millions 
of dollars are spent on the most lavish 
technology and expertise of entertainment, 
while huge segments of the population live in 
squalor. An infinitesimal elite plans in secret 
and plays the game, while the rest watch from 
•he sidelines. The participants are concerned 
not with the activity as such but with the cash 

The qualities most universally celebrated 
in the game are a combination of fear of 
failure "hates to lose" and ruthless aggres- 
sion "mean". The onlookers feel that it is 
"their" team though they have nothing 
whatever to do with its function. A suppressed 

Football as a part of the A merican way of

The Iheme of the field is reinforced again 
and again in he commercial ads for cars that 
are ever bigger, faster and more powerful (the 
predator nomenclature for both football 
learns and cars is worth noting. 

The language or war is habitually 
employed "field general", "long bomb", 
"boys", "blitz", "front line", "pursuit", 
"good hil" on ritual and grandeaur, on the 
national anthem and the pre-game hush that 
cast a spell or religious sanctity upon the 
whole event. And so forth: — 

Bui perhaps most important to footbal is 
aulhorily: lhe strict hierarchy of the club and 
its exhaustive control of every aspect of the 
game and. even, the personal lives of the 
player employees. The unforgiveable sin of a 
player is lo question someone above him if he 
does that he's fnished. The chain of command 
moves from the owner (who is almost never 
seen), down through the general-manager, the 
coach, lhe quarterback and trustworthy 

Unlike any other game, every pattern of 
movement on the field is strictly dictated by

movements of formulation (i.e. plays), and 
every possible decision on the field are all 
given from above. Similarly, patterns of 

Sports should be human, human and

the way university should be. That's the 
revolution, man.

the bedtimes of the players, their physical 
pleasures, their travelling clothes, their habits

all "cussin"), the mode and times of their 
relations with the public (commercial, social 
or political activity that is not to the 
authorities' liking may lead to fines or 

Even lhe learn one plays for is decided by 
higher officials the player being "drafted" 
(this lerm is revealing) by a club through a 
procedure in which he hs no voice whatever. 
Any defiance of any part of this whole 
structure of cammand means permanent ban- 
ning from the game. 

Though there are certain evident 
resemblances between the football cor- 
poration and other types of corporation, the 
more striking similarity is of course to the the 
military, or indeed to political conservatism 
bordering on "fascism". In all three spheres, 
absolute obedience lo higher authority is 
required in every aspect of life, the principles 
of uniformity and order are rigidly enforced, 
and destructive violence is the fundamental 
mode of extra-group communication. 

The correlation between the growing 
tendency toward extreme right poliics in 
North America and the increasing pop- 
ularity of big-league football should not be 
overlooked. If this appears fanciful, consider 
the widespread coincidence between devotion 
lo football and to socio-political conformity 
in American learning institutions and in the 
people as a whole. 

Nationalistic displays are conspicuously 
and increasingly evident at football games 
(recently there was an official period of silence 
for US military personnel held captive in 
North America). And the late dean of 
coaches. Vince Lombardi, outlined football's 
mission as follows: "We must regain respect 
for aulhorily. We must learn to respect 
aulhorily. A man must be part of a group an 
subject himself to that group. Discipline, that 
is what football is." 

If the connection between football and 
politics still seems ingenious rather than 
substantive, ponder this remark by the former 
California superindentent of public in- 
struction. Max Rafferty: "Critics of college 
football are kooks, crumbums and commies 
hairy, loud-mouth beatniks. Football is war 
without killing ihey are the custodians of the 
concepts of democracy. As football players, 
ihey possess a clear, bright fighting spirit 
which is America itselT 

And then consider lhe words of President 
Nixon after US troops recently and un- 
expectedly invaded North Vietnam: 
"Sometimes you have to take them by 
surprise,. It s like lootball. You run a play 
and it fails. Then you turn around and call the 
same play again because ihey aren't expecting 

The connections between right-wing 
polilics and the mania for football are too 
many lo be ignored: bolh ground themselves 
on a property seizing principle, apotheosize 
struggle and competition, publicly idolize 
victory and the powerful, make authority 
absolute, and relate lo opposing groups by 
violent aggression. 

When the president of the United States 
compares war maneuvers to football plays 
and lhe head of the education system in one of 
the richest stales suggests that war principles 
of football represent "America itself," the 
associations become somewhat sinister. One 
might be excused for wondering whether the 
"game theory" so popular with Pentagon and 
White House strategists might not be in- 
structively fleshed out into a football model, 
with the world as gridiron, the game plan as 
"possession" and America as history's 
"greatest ever" football machine.

Council ignores day care objections 

After two hours of seemingly 
futile debate, U of T's Governing 
Council decided yesterday, by a vote 
of 19 to 10, to accept the report of 
the Internal Affairs Committee con- 
cerning the running of the 
proposed day care centre on the 

The report recommends the 
establishment of one 
adminislration-run centre, and was 
objected to by two existing day care 
groups, Campus Co-Op and St. 
Andrews nursery. 

About 60 people from Campus 
Co-Op, whose occupation of ah 
unused building forced the Gover- 
ning Council to agree on a policy of 
some kind, were at the meeting, 
clapping on occasion and jeering at 
the ineptitude of the debate. 

Paul Cadario, chairman of the 
Internal Affairs Committee, 
presented the report -calling for a 
university-university-operated cen- 
tre with space for 50 children, but 
excluding children of parents not 
connected to the University. The 
plan also will result in doubling the 
minimum fees that parents are 
paying at Campus Co-Op, from $40 
to about $85 a month per child. 

A few council members opposed 
what they thought were the in- 
equities of the report. Student Joyce 
Denyer recommended that the cen- 
tre be equipped to handle a- larger 
number of children, specifically the 
65 s children in the existing centres, 
the two Campus Co-Op centres and 
the St. Andrews Day Nursery. Ad- 
ministrative staff representative 
John Parker added that the parents 
of these children should also run the 

The other administrative staff 
rep, Gwen Russell, who was also a 
member of the administration- 
established Day Care Board whose 
report was ignored by the ad- 
ministration, recommended that the 

committee give the mauer further 

Brian Morgan, student member 
of the council, proposed that the 
report be sent back to the committee 
to amend the com mi t tee's 
recommendation concerning paren- 
tal involvement. The new policy 
requires that the .University be 
financially and legally responsible 
for the centre, and that parents be 
involved essentially by way of an 
advisory board. Feeling that an 
advisory board half composed of 
parents, with extremely limited 
powers, was not enough, he asked 
that it be sent back. The motion was 
defeated 17 to 16. 

Further debate was crowned by 
the ramblings of president John 
Evans on such policy questions as 
the danger of allowing one group to 
have philosophical control over the 

"It'S going to be difficult to 
accomodate all these groups," he 
added. In this, he echoed St. An- 
drew's, Campus Co-Op and the Day 
Care Board. Their recommendation, 
however, was that more than one 
centre be set up, to allow each group 
to run its own centre. 

A move to reopen the policy 
concerning parental control met 
with confusion from council 
members. One stood up and said "I 
don't understand what we're doing 

Applause and shouts of "We 
don't either" came from the Cam- 
pus Co-Op people observing the 

As 7 pm neared, the committee by 
this time throughly tired and con- 
fused, decided to vote to accept the 

The Campus Co-Op group is 
dissatisfied with almost every aspect 
of the report. 

According to Julie Mathien, 

former co-ordinator with the group, 
there is not nearly enough room for 
the number of children already using 
day care around the campus. 

The new day-care centre will 
exclude many of the children 
already involved in day-care, 
notably those whose parents are not 
members of the "university 

Campus Co-Op has been running 
their centres successfully on a 
parent-controlled, parent- operated 

basis. The role of the parent would 
be significantly downplayed in the 
university's plan. 

Yet, John Evans feels the policy is 
very flexible. 

"Yes. but they (the 
administration) have got the flex." 
replies Tom Mathien. 

The council seemed to ignore the 
fact that the site of their future 
centre is occupied presently by Cam- 
pus Co-Op for their over-two day 
care centre. Co-Op people look up- 

on the plan as a move to get them 
out of the way without providing a 
satisfactory day care program. 

Bob Davis, coordinator with the 
Co-Op, said, "They won't get this 
through without a lot of trouble." 

Possible picketing of Simcoe Hall 
is planned, and other demon- 
strations are being considered. 

One thing is certain: they are not 
leaving their building voluntarily. 
They left the meeting shouting 
"You'll have to arrest our children." 

Marxist scholar denied 
Canadian entry visa 


DOWNSVIEW (CUP) - An internationally known 
professor hired to teach York undergraduate and 
graduate political thoery courses has been refused entry 
to Canda for "security reasons", Excalibur learned last 


The case of Istevan Meszaros, Marxist theorist, 
literary critic, political scientist, philosophy teacher, 
teacher of philosophy and esthetics, is under review by a 
special committee, said York dean of arts John Saywell 
earlier this week. 

Meszaros, a British subject since 1965, comes from 
Hungary. He was a member of the 1956 provisional 
government and fled to Italy when the Russian 
Stalinists regained power in Hungary. He has been 
leaching in the social science department at the 
University of Sussex for the past six years. 

York hired Meszaros last spring as the hub of a new 
graduate program — social and political thought. He's 
already scheduled to teach two undergraduate courses, 
said Mel Hill, head of York's social science 

In June, according to York officials, the Canadian 
embassy in London refused to give Meszaros a visa, 
saying thai Meszaros' entry was not "in the best 
interests ot tne country". 

According to Ed Fanning, the district admissions 
supervisor of the immigration branch office in Toronto, 
immigrants can be refused entry visas for having a* 
criminal record, medical reasons, and security reasons. 
He said the latter category is subject to interpretation 
by immigration officials and may include persons 
supected or "treason, espionage, and deserting a ship". 

Saywell has been negotiating with government 
officials since June, but would not comment on the 

York president David Slater said Wednesday "the 
matter is being actively worked on. We're not engaging 
in public debate over the matter because we've found in 
the past that beyond a certain point, this does more harm 
than good." 

Neither knew when the review decision might be 

Meanwhile, according to Hill, Meszaros is waiting 
in London with his family for the final word. He hadn't 
thought Ihere would be any difficulty and resigned his 
position at the University of Sussex and sold his 
household goods. 

Fifty York faculty members have circulated a 
petition urging Slater to take action and the Canadian 
Association of University Teachers have expressed 
their "concern" to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

York urged to recruit 
more worker students 

York Univeristy's part-time college 
should recruit more working class 
students, a report to the dean from 
the college's political science 
students' union says. 

The report recommends that 
Atkinson College conduct a 
recruiting program in factories and 
at union meetings,, and advertising 
in union periodicals. 

Dean Harry Crowe was 
unavailable for comment. 

The 17-page report was given to 
Crowe in August and circulated to 
Atkinson political science 
professors, with the demand that a 
student-faculty committee study it 
and suggest a future course for 
Atkinson "as a part-time in- 
stitution of higher learning for 
working people." 

The administration has taken 
no action yet but the student union 
meets this week to discuss it.

courses which are relevant to in- 
dustrial workers" — such as class and 
race relations, union history, 
organization and structure, and the 
literature, politics, and history of the 
working class in Canada. 

Atkinson should also sponsor 
pre-university courses to upgrade 
any worker students who lack 
reading and writing skills needed for 
university work, the report says. 

The docuifiesnt reveals that out 
of 1523 students in this summer's 
term, only 1.5 per cent were 
workers. And out of 2,235 students 
in the 1971 winter term, only 2.6 per

Audience paying more, unimpressed 

• Kerr defends fees hikes, attacks foes 

The Varsity 3 


DOWNSVIEW (CUP) - Speaking to 
approximately 200 York students yesterday, Ontario 
Minister of Colleges and Universities George Kerr 
called recent statements by student leaders leaders 
"inaccurate", and attempted to dispell "misleading 
impressions" about government policy on universities. 

He implied that many of the full-time student 
politicians responsible for the statements are jusL 
organizing the fees strike "to justify their jobs". But, 
judging from the occasional hisses, laughter, and brief 
putbursts during the two hour session on the crisis in 
post-secondary education, the audience was not very 
impressed by his argument. 

Kerr classed as "fiction" a recent statement in' 
McMaster University's student newspaper The 
Silhouette which suggested that the province had 
cutback its support of education. He told the audience 
that in fact the education budget has increased and that 
the two billion dollar expenditure represents a major 
portion of Ontario's live billion dollar budget. 

Kerr explaiowd thai the rationale behind the $100 
tuition fee increase this year was to "charge the user a 
slightly higher proportion of the cost of education". 

He said that the Ontario taxpayer has already been 
asked to "dig deep in other areas" and referred to tax 
increases on alcohol and gasoline. 

"We couldn't ask a man struggling to support a 
family," to pay more for the cost of education, he said. 

(Shouts from the audience called for taxation of 
'corporate welfare bums'. (NDP leader David Lewis 
has made the key point of his election campaign the 
charge that corporate giants are living off the working 

man by accepting large grants and avoiding taxes.) 

Kerr pointed out that students pay.only 15 per cent of 
the cost of education through tuition and that tuition 
fees have not changed in seven years. 

He criticized the charge made by Ontario Federation 
of Students spokesmen that the tuition hike will affect 
the goal of universal accessibility and used as a counter- 
argument the fact that there have been more 
applications for student aid this year. 

He said that the fee hike would not "deter low and 
middle income students from the goal of post- 
secondary education", and argued that since two out of 
every five students qualify for assistance, "we're 
achieving the goal of providing education to all strata of 
this society". 

He also stated that although the loan ceiling for the 
Ontario Student Aid Program had been raised from 
$600 to $800, the Ontario program is still the most 
generous in the country. He added that the age of 
independence had been lowered from 25 to 24. 

York president David Slater later pointed out tht low 
income students do not enjoy the advantage of these 
loans because they don't reach university. He suggested 
that changes were necessary in the whole system and 
not just in post-secondary loan financing. 

Kerr's final point was that university enrolment has 
not declined in the past year except in three or four 
institutions. He said that enrolment has gone iip at U of 
T, Western, Queen's, and Guelph, and suggested that 
this was an indication students had not been deterred 
from university by the fee hike. He mentioned only 
Carleton and Windsor as universities which have 
experienced a drop in enrollment. 

Art and Science 
students to meet, 
consider new union 


The St. Michael's College 
Student Union has called for a non- 
bureaucratic, yet non-policy-making 
arts and science union. 

However, the Victoria College 
Students* Administrative Council 
(VUSAC) sees a need for a stronger 
body, which while still not having a 
large bureaucracy, would have the 
ability to initiate and press policy. 

The union's fate is to be decided 
tomorrow at a constitutional con- 
ference in the Hart House Music 
Room, beginning at 10 am. If the 
conference wants the union, it then 
must be ratified by three quarters of 
college student councils, arts and 
science course unions, and similar 

The SMC council does not sec 
arts and science students as a 
cohesive whole, separate from the 
professional students* faculties. 

Its brief said "it seems that the 
most important issues that will face 
the students, at least in the 
forseeable future, will face sUidents 
generally rather than those in any 

particular faculty." 

It further stated that the union 
should not make policy statements 
since these are more precisely the 
role of college councils and course 

A VUSAC brief, proposed by 
vice-president Debra Lewis and 
education commissioner Rick 
Gregory, whose principles were 
adopted unanimously last night, 
tries to evolve a structure for the 
union from the needs and functions 
of such a body. Its basic premise is 
that a union should not develop into 
a new bureaucracy but be decen- 
tralized with coordination and 
policy initiation functions. 

It proposed setting up a system 
whereby more than a simple ma- 
jority of representatives to the union 
would be needed to set any policy. It 
wanted to set up guarantees of sup- 
port, such as that if two thirds of any 
one estate disagree with a policy, it 
be implemented. 

Since SAC is prevented from 
interfering in the various faculties by 
its new constitution, a need for 
union of arts and science students to 

coordinate the functioning of the 
various college councils and course 
unions was seen. 

The student representatives on the 
General Committee, of Arts and 
Science although elected in 
administration-run elections to a 
committee which students formally 
don't recognize, may also be tied in 
to thejiroposed union. 

If passed, the union will have a 
budget of about $20,000, raised by a , 
SAC levy of two dollars per studentT 
Some of the money has already been 
spent in summer research, including 
paying workers Phil Dack and Rick 

Dack, whose term as fieldworker 
expires tomorrow, says that "given 
the problems in arts and science, 
something must be done to maintain 
gains". One such gain is the New 
Program, currently under review 
(and perhaps attack) by a presiden- 
tial advisory committee. 

The conference promises to be a 
day of "heavy politicising" and may 
develop into a "theatre of the ab- 
surd", Dack says. 

Creelman knocks bourgeois press 
for not fighting stipend cuts 

Colleges and Universities Minister George Kerr said at York that 
students should pay a highe r proportion of education costs. 

The Varsity errs; 
Steiner wronged 


SAC university commissioner John Creelman 
criticized the "established press" this week for refusing 
to "take on" Richard Potter, Minister of Health, over 
the issue of dropping stipends for para-medical interns. 

The remark came after a meeting last week 
between deputy minister Stan Martin and a SAC 
delegation which included president Eric Miglin, Food 
Sciences student president Rosie Fuss, SAC rep Irene 
Miller, Creelman and a few other "interested 
students". SAC submitted a brief on the stipends to the 
health ministry at the meeting. 

Martin "conceded many points in the brief," said 
Creelman. "More important, he didn't defend the 
government action. He acted like he had nothing to do 
with it and had no sympathy with it." 

It was announced last April that the living 
allowances for students doing work as interns would be 
abolished, because of "financial considerations". 

The SAC brief argued that the action would create 

a shortage of para-medical personnel and, in the long 
run. damage the province's economy. According to the 
brief, para-medicals are becoming more important in 
medicine today because they can do work doctors 
would normally do, at less cost. 

Miller reported that Martin, after much 
persuasion, finally admitted that cutting off the 
stipends would be a "disincentive" to students planning 
to study in Ontario. 

She adds Martin said he would "make the Cabinet 
aware" of the SAC brief. Martin could not be reached 
to confirm this. 

Creelman said that, in light of this, "efforts have 
been redoubled" to arrange a meeting with Robert 
Welch, Minister of Social Development, and his 

Meanwhile, the minister of health. Potter is 
presently out of the country and will be unavailable 
until the end of the month. 

An article in Wednesday's Varsity 
incorrectly implied that Medicine's- 
Associate Dean J. W. Steiner does 
not normally speak to students. 

Responsible for admissions to the 
faculty. Dr. Steiner's work closely 
parallels that of arts and science 
college registrars. As~ a matter of 
course, Steiner's assistants handle 
queries directed to Medicine's 
Students Affairs office unless they 
are unable to provide the requested 
information or the inquirer insists 
upon a direct contact with Steiner. 

Steiner's office receives more than 
500 telephone inquiries a day and is 
responsible for student affairs, in- 
cluding admissions, for the 4,000- 
member faculty. 

The article in question dealt with 
a warning by Innis College registrar 
David King that Medicine and Law 
might not look as favorably upon 
experimental Innis and Sociology 
courses as they would upon the more 
traditional arts and science courses. 

In an intreview subsequent to the 
story's publication, Steiner pointed 

out that he had requested guidance 
from [he Arts and Science Faculty 
in weighing the relative difficulty of 
various courses offered by the facul- 
ty for admission purposes for the 
closely-contested places in the 
medical school, some time ago. The 
faculty declined his request and he 
has since resubmitted it for review. 

The information, Steiner 
explained, would be used by. 
Medicine's admission committee to 
decide between applicants with 
equal academic records applying for 
admission to the school. 

Unless the faculty provides the 
information, the school's admissions 
committee, less familiar with arts 
and science courses, must attempt to 
weigh their relative difficulty. Arts 
and Science faculties in some other 
Canadian universities already supp- 
ly this information to professional 

The Varsity regrets any 
embarassment or confusion the in- 
correct information may have 
caused Dr. Steiner.

Murphy's coaching is 
a 'comedy of errors 9 

The lime has come for a re- 
evaluation of the questionable 
lalenis of football coach Ron 
Murphy. After Saturday's comedy 
of errors against Ottawa University, 
one just can't help but wonder who 
is the coach and who is the water 

Il is hard to believe that out of 
26.000 students at the LTofT cam- 
pus the players are not of at least 
equal calibre to those of the op- 
posing learns. In other words, there 
is no doubt that Murphy has more 
raw talent to draw from than any 
other coach in the league. Indeed, 
that talent has remained 
just that — raw; and so it seems 
from Saturday's performance, it is 
quickly going bad. Come, on. 

Promising stars were left on the 
sidelines while old favorites were 
allowed to play no matter how poor- 
ly Ihey performed. We cannot re- 
main silent aboul one of these sen- 
timental has-beens, Cor Doret. 
Doret's dismal performance" was 
characterized by instinctive nose 
dives into the turf at the slightest 
shadow of an Ottawa uniform. His 
fear or injury could be offered as an 
excuse for his poor play. But, a full 
game of poor play is inexcusable 
when during all this time sitting on 
the bench was Paul Kitchen whose 
brilliant performance against York 
was distinguished by gaining almost 
100 yards in the first half. (This was 
before Murphy benched him for the 
second half.) 

YS insists 
its not LSA 
youth wing 

The Varsity's article on .U of T 
political groups has once again reaf- 
firmed our view that nobody can 
represent the program of the Young 
Socialists better than ourselves. Just 
for the record of your press and for 
students at U ofT. we would like to 
lake up a few lines to correct the 
"errors^, "oversights", and "ex- 
aggerations" of your political writing 

To begin, the YS is not the "youth 
wing or the League for Socialist 
Action". We are an independent 
student group having chapters es- 
tablished in high schools and on 
campuses across both Canada and 
Quebec. We are the biggest 
revolutionary youth organization in 
Ihe country and support the LSA 
because we realize that students 
cannot change society by themselves 
but must form an alliance with 
Canada's working class and the 
nucleus of their revolutionary 

The article asserts that the 
Vietnam Mobilization Committee 
(VMC) is controlled by the YS. This 
is the type of byline that has been 
used consistently by people opposing 
the anti-war movement, women's 
liberation, the gay movement, or 
anything else they happen to dis- 
agree with. Call it "communist- 
controlled" or a "Trot-front", and 
immediately these struggles are sup- 
posed to become irrelevant. This is 
known as red-baiting. In fact, the 
VMC is a coalition of various 

Dave Quick wasn't too swift 
either. On the one occasion he did 
catch the ball, he nearly had to be 
restrained from kissing his team- 
males in uncontrolled elation as if he 
had just scored the winning goal in 
ihe Stanley Cup. This isn't hockey. 
And. it doesn't look much like foot- 
ball xilher. 

As for our all-star quarterback, 
his Tabled passing arm proved to be 
no more than a grim fairy tail 
tucked between the legs of centre 

groups and individuals, all opposed 
to the war in Vietnam, and working 
together to end it. Drop out to the 
next meeting and find out first-hand. ' 

You next say that our demands in 
the anti-war movement are for 
withdrawing U.S. troops, "(while 
ihe rest of the left calls for victory to 
the NLF)" If you were at all in tune 
with the Canadian anti-war move- 
ment you should realize that its 
central demand is "U.S. Out Now" 
— meaning all American personnel, 
military equipment, and material 
support to the Thieu regime in 
Saigon. Who, may we ask is the 
"rest of the left"? — the Old Mole? 
On this latter demand we would like 
to note that it is not the task of 
revolutionaries to tell the Viet- 
namese that the NLF will win their 
battles for them or to provide 
cheerleaders for their victory 
celebrations. Anti-war activists in 
Canada must mobilize people 
around concrete demands against 
the complicity of the Canadian 
government, against the genocidal 
policies of the Pentagon, and in 
solidarity with the massive 
American antiwar movement. 

On women's liberation The 
Varsity claims that we refuse to 
raise anything except the abortion 
issue. This is enlirly false. Marxists 
have a full program against 
women's oppression, and we carry 
Ihis both in our press and election 
campaigns. The YS, however, 
emphasizes and supports the 
abortion-law repeal campaign in 
particular because it has been raised 
by women all over North America 
and Europe as the central issue of 
ihe women's liberation movement, il 
unites women from right across 
Canada and Quebec, and most im- 

Russ Mitchell. Surely, every 
quarterback is entitled to an off day, 
but it is the coach's responsibility to 
recognize this and make corrections 
as (he game progresses. Where was 
Sieve Kerr who more than filled 
Dunkley's shoes against York? Is 
it necessary that Dunkley be injured 
before Kerr can be played? Think 
aboul il. Murphy. 

Although mediocrity was the 
order of. the day, ihere were some 
who play ed very well. Libert 

portanily. it poS es mass actions 
challenging the Canadian govern- 
ment — the only way in which 
women can hope to achieve full 

The Varsity concludes this stream 
of conciousness by parroting right- 
wing attacks on our movement by 
the NDP brass — attacks designed 
to stifle political discussion and dis- 
agreement inside the Party. The 
Young Socialists is the only 
revolutionary student organization 
in Canada that supports the NDP, 
the polilcal arm of the Canadian 
working class. We campaign for the 
NDP in our press and defend it at 
meetings. We don't have to "in- 
filtrate" the NDP as your article 
claims — we are already a part of it, 
and will continue to build it until it 
wins power in Ottawa.

CPL not 
complicit in 
Maoist tactics 

The Varsity editorial on Friday 
September 15. "Passivity breeds 
racism", claims the Canadian Party 
of Labor's "indifference" to the 

Sgi"! Gua ^ meeti "8 last sion tn 
Wednesday , s "mexcusable". Our— Italian 

Castillo demonstrated what second 
effort is all aboul. The few limes he 
was given the ball. Are you listening. 
Doret? Other players who deserve 
recognition for a fine afternoon were 
Neil Lumsden and Torris Cross. It's 
loo bad they played for ihe Gee- 

Back to Murphy. What excuse 
can he offer for consistent mediocri- 
ty which in professional football 
would have cost him his job long 
ago? (A pret ty good argumenl 

call to action, nor did you even 
mention this demonstration in your 
Wednesday issue. According to your 
editorial. The Varsity must arso be 
called "a sorry reflection on the 
passivity with which our society 
accepts racism." 

There are several reasons why we 
did nol allend the demonstration. 
Certainly, we have no intention of 
leading people into a blood bath 
created by a sect of provocateurs, 
the Maoites. Did il occur to you that 
their antics, not "indifference", may 
keep people away from such 

Varsity, like most liberal journals, 
only sees fascism and racism when it 
wears a Nazi armband. Conse- 
quently, you see in Western Guard 
ihe rise of reaction, rather than 
looking to ihe far more vicious and 
institutionalized racism m this socie- 
ty. The Canadian government, the 
Workman's Compensation Board, 
and ihe University or Toronto com- 
mit more racist acts in one hour 
<hun Western Guard does in a year. 

At ihis university Prof. Ian 
Hector or the Medical faculty wrote 
a report Tor the Compensation 
Board claiming an injured Italian 
construction worker was "culturally 
predisposed io feign injury". This 
resulted in the man getting only 25 
per cenl of his compensation pen- 
sion. Another example: Mutual of 
Omaha insurance company is 
refusing to pay an Italian worker 
also permanently disabled, a pen- 
sion ihul he deserves, because he is 

absence al the demonstration 
tiled as evidence lhal we intend to 
sil by idly while racism and fascism 
grow m strength. 

You do nol mention The Varsity's 
indifference, for you also gave no 

(even office workers 

Mutual agree thai this is the 
reason). Students for a Democratic 
Society have been having demon- 
strations at Mutual's office every 
Wednesday al noon. This is where 
ihe racism is. This is where we 

against giving tenure to Varsity 
coaches?) Talent should be 
recognized and ultimately utilized to 
best advantage. This is the job of the 
coach. And, despite Murphy's good 
example, he shows to his players of 
being a good loser — a very good 
loser — a very regular loser; what 
we need for the Varsity football 
team is a good winner. 

Blair Christie (APSCIII) 

should concentrate our fight. May 
we presume that The Varsity's com- 
plete indifference to these struggles 
is coming to an end, since "passivity 
breeds racism"? 

If you are concerned about 
contenders for a fascist movement, 
you should look more widely. Many 
"left wing" nationalists, for ex- 
ample, have basically the same 
chauvinistic and racist slogans as 
Don Andrews and the Guard. An- 
drews hates blacks, and Jim Laxer 
hales Americans. On this campus 
people have tried to organize around 
quotas on foreign professors. How 
aboul saying there are too many 
Jewish professors, instead of too 
many Americans? Then people 
might be prepared to call racism 
what up 'til now goes under the 
euphemism of "anti-imperialism". 
But Varsity, ironically, instead of 
attacking these racists, has a record 
of promoting them over the last two 

We want to fight racism and 
fascism, but at its source: in the heart 
of the ruling class, not amongst a 
small sect of lumpens. Western 
Guard's meeting last Wednesday is 
actually an indication of fascism's 
decline, ir numbers are to mean 
anything. Nazi John Beattie used to 
gel more supporters out in Allan 
Gardens 10 years ago. All this talk 
or "untied action or the left" will do 
what il did in the 1930's; gel 
revolutionaries and leftists to ally 
with "progressives" in the fight 
against fascism. But the 
"progressives, as in the I930's 
(where ihey included FDR, de 
Gaulle, etc.) turn out to be Tar more 
effective sources or racism than the 
lar right weirdos.

W.W. Theatre Productions Is 
currently staging an exceptional piece of 
theatre by the French author Albert 
Camus. "The Just Assassins - are terroists 
In pre-Revolutlon Russia (1905) who are 
scheming to assassinate a grand duke, 
and eventually to wrest Russia from the 
clutches of the Czar and restore It to the 

The characters attempt to justify their 
terrorist methods and their killing, and 
they do develop a concept of justice which 
renders their conscience Innocent and 
their actions Just. It Is Interesting to com- 
pare with this the thorough moral lam- 
basting delivered by today's media to 
current terrorists. Their argument can be 
made to sound convincing. 

The production itself Is well- 
conceived and smoothly executed. The 
director and actors have worked together 
to produce the existentialist point of view 
from which the play was written. The 
actors deliver their lines in a very per- 
sonalized, frank and" open manner, and 
come across as Individuals with a cause. 
The director has created a world with a 
mood of hostility and confusion, so that 
the audience understands and sym- 
pathizes with the characters' alienation. 

You may not leave the production 
with schemes of planting bombs In the 
trashcans behind Slmcoe Hall, or under 
the limousines of our esteemed gover- 
nors, but any lurking discontent that you 
may have previously had with our 
educational system may creep toward 
some unexpected realization.

CANADIAN film-makers are the 
racial equal of any other country's film- 
makers, and contrary to cant a Canadian 
picture Is not an automatic box-office 
disaster. This has been merrily borne out 
by the season of Canadian movies now 
winding down at the Poor Alex. Tonight 
through Sunday, are the last days for 
Breathing Together, which won first prize 
at the Ann Arbour Film Festival. While not 
so hot as film, it Is a solid, gloriously 
biased documentary on the halcyon days 
of the youth culture revolution com- 
bination. With those days gone, Breathing 
becomes first-rate cultural history par- 
ticularly, because director Markson had 
the good sense to let the figures he 
documents hold forth In long unedited 
bursts. Since these Include Allen 
Ginsberg, Klaes Oldenberg, Fred Ham- 
pton, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, William 
Kunstler, Buckmlnster Fuller and Timothy 
Leary, a very theatrical cast to begin with, 
Markson really just had to hold the 
camera steady and keep the mike in close. 
He did, and the result Is funny, Ironic, 
Informative and sometimes very sad when 
you consider the fortunes of the speakers 
(and of America) In the four years since 
the film was shot. 

Markson's first film, Zero the Fool, 
shows at eight o'clock, but unless you are 
given to experiments In dramatic 
form— with no redeeming content— you 
would probably better enjoy the evening 
by Just arriving at ten for Breathing 
Together. $1.50 at the Poor Alex, Bloor at 
Brunswick. Through Sunday. 

Everything you Always Wanted 
to Know About Sex: Woody Allen has 
chosen seven rubrics from Dr. Reuben's 
dumb, dumb book and turned them Into 
something like comedy. There Is a classy 
send-up of an Antonlonl film (appropriate- 
ly about frigidity), subtitles and all; a love 
story about a man and a sheep which is 
elegaic, not bucolic; and a mission-control 
center skit about scoring, complete with 
crises and camaraderie. When the gags 
fall, this movie begins to look very 
smutty Indeed. But then Allen has always 
been a scatter-shot comic. Uptown. $2.75 
for about $1.25 worth of entertainment. 

Play It Again, Sam: Many of the gags 
are at the Playboy level, but Woody Allen 
and Diane Keating turn their characters 
Into real mensches, so this becomes a 
nice movie. Uptown, $2.50.

The Varsity Community Guide 13 

guide to the music scene 


Looking at any ten block square area 
In Toronto you're likely to find at least one 
store selling records. If you're Interested In 
good selection and low prices you'll 
probably do your shopping at a discount 
record store on Yonge or Bloor. 

I took a stroll one morning to price 
some recent releases on different labels 
that listed at $6.29 and one double album, 
the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street' 
which lists at about $10.98. 

The worst prices were quickly found 
at Simpson's with the 629's at an Inflated 
$4.98 and "Exile" going for $8.98. These 
prices should eliminate this department 
f store from any futher serious 

The Yonge St. pair, Sam The Record Man 
A&A came out with Identical prices on all 
Items with 629's at $4.49 and "Exile" at 
$7.95. Between the two stores you can get 
almost any record you may want — the 
variety and amount of stock is staggering 
and Includes many imports) at wallet- 
busting prices of course). Both stores 
feature weekend or 15 minute specials (at 
9 am) which can net you a top selling 
album for $2.99 to $3.49. The special Is the 
cheapest but most painful way to buy 
records.) Many manufacturers' delisted 
albums are available for $1.90 at both 
stores. If you 're trying to decide whether to 
buy a sale priced album at Sam 'sorA&S 
you might remember that A & A Is owned 
by the American based CBS corporation 
(Columbia Records). 

Eaton's prices are now the same as 
Sam's. There seems to be a reasonable 
amount of stock but you can^t expect 629's 
on sale for less than $3.99. The main 
advantages of this outlet are simply those 
of any department store. Phone orders 
and COD's are possible and payments can 
be delayed using a charge account. 

Target Tape stocks very few records 
but of those available 629's were being 
offered at $3.99 and "Exile" was $6.29. 
The store's main business Is tapes so so 
the record shelves are sparse. On the day 
I visited, I could find no Columbia discs. 
My guess Is the $3.99 price tags won't last 
very long. 

Round Records Is easily my pick as 
the best place to shop. With a 34 per cent 
discount applied to the list price of all 
albums, 629's were being sold at $4.15 
and "Exile" was a very low $6.75. It's a 
small personable store with consistently 
low prices. Many delisted albums are also 
available at $1.90 as well as used albums 
(some recent and In fairly good condition} 
at about the same price. If you're tired of 
your old records they can be sold to 

With the store being so small the 
stock Is alas limited, but you can order any 
album that's not In, and usually receive it 
in a day or so. You still get regular 34 per 
cent discount off the list price. Round 
owner Larry Ellenson can rap with you for 
hours about records, music or anything 
else that might turn you on. It's a one man 
operation, with no big business ties, no 
supermarket style shopping aisles, and 
most Important, no rip off prices. 

People who are short of money can 
listen to records at and borrow them from 
any North York Public Library. Collections 
are small and releases take many weeks 
to appear. Classical fans can choose from 
a complete llbrarary set up In the Edward 
Johnson Building to listen to music. 

There are many defects In the albums 
that are being sold today. If you thought It 
was your hearing when that album you 
bought sounded scratched on Its very first 
spin around the turntabfe, you can stop 

Many of today's new discs are 
carelessly pressed, resulting In bubbles In 
the vinyl that cause pops or skips. The 
new thin discs and the elaborate triple 
fold'out five-poster extravaganza Jackets 
result In some unusually shaped records 
these days. 

At the kinds of prices you have to pay 
for records, you should rebel against such 
shoddy practices. The first thing you 
should do after buying the album Is place 
the bill In a safe place. If after a first play 
you think the record would be more com- 
fortable In a boomerang collection, or If a 

few pops or skips appear, don't be afraid 
to return the defective item to the store 
with the bill. Demand a new copy. And if 
that one's defective, take it back too, until 
you're satisfied. 

If the store refuses to exchange 
albums, tell them that you'll never be back 
again. Then call up the distributor {any 
record store can tell you what company 
distributes a given label). If for some 
reason the company refuses to send you a 
new record, write a letter to the manager. 
That s always good for some action. The

music scene 

Just as Toronto is now considered a 
miniature New York In the world of theatre 
so too the city has suddenly become a 
miniature London In the world of serious 
music, chamber, choral and symphony 
concerts abound, although one evening 
In the orchestra here often costs as 
a week of Festival Hall concerts in London 
Prices are, not unreasonable, however, 

the fullest slate of music events in the city 
Phone 928-3744 and watch The Varsity's 
"Watsup" for info. 

International Artist Series at Massey 
Hall. This is probably the second most 
enterprising classical series In Toronto 
Six concerts will feature artists such as 
Victoria de Los Angeles and Zubin Mehta 
conducting his old orchestra, the Israel 
Philharmomonic. You can do almost as 
well prlcewlse as the TS series too: 
$16.50. Two separate concerts feature 
Segovia and the Vienna Boys Choir in the 
special events of the series. 

St. Lawrence Centre. There are 
chamber concerts all through the year 
usually, and this year the town hall is 
hosting the International Quartet Series 
from November 2 to April 16 of next year' 
The quartets will be the Amadeus, the 
Quartetto Italiano, the Lasalle (renowned 
for their recording of modern music 
having just completed Bartok's string 
quartets), the Bartok, the Orford, the 
Czech, the Borodin. Phone 366-1656 for 
information. Prices are $3.50 and $4 50 
Subscription Is sold out. 

The Candlan Opera Company at 
OKeefe. Unfortunately we have to wait 
until 1976 even to hear Berg's Lulu 
Wozzeck, considered by many the best 
opera written in this century, is stilf 
presumably too radical at the ripe age of 

concerting process going on in the music 
industry which I call "Great Distortion 
bhin. Ten years ago records were thick 
flat, robust things which lacked only 
superior play-back equipment to do them 
justice. In the last five years audio hi- 
fidelity has become a precise description 
of countless stereo components at 
moderately high prices, when it used to be 
a merely optimistic label on every Eaton's 
home console. 

But here is the irony: records have 
become thin, flimsy sheets of plastic 
sometimes warped into absurd convexity' 
At the same time, prices continue to go 
up- Angel (EMI) Records is a perfect 
example. They are the largest recordinq 
company in the world and once produced 
a sumptuous, unrivalled sound. No more 
Recordings are often cheaply and/or bad- 
y miked, and (my biggest gripe) are as 
hm and out of shape as the cardboard 
they are packaged in. 

Only London Records and Deutsche 
Grammophon Gesellschaft consistently 
retain the "full" sound for classical and 
perhaps Reprise and Elektra (among 
some others) are being fair much of the 
time to rock and jazz. Bargain classical 
labels such as Mace, Nonesuch Tour- 
nabout, Ace of Diamonds (with sound 
equal to the best - it's London's bargain 
label), Seraphim (Angel's bargain label 
often competing with its fullprlced peer) 
Monitor and Everyman are un- 
questionably the mainstay of the classical 

A trip to New York or Detroit makes 
the bargain-hunter from Toronto tem- 
porarily woozy, but chances are In the rest 
of Canada there's no street like Yonge 
Street for low prices and wide choice. 

The following list Is by order of 
preference, based on price, selection, and 
to some extent atmosphere. 

Round Records (110 Bloor West near 
Bay) second floor. The on-hand stock is 
exclusively rock, but the proprietor will 
order any classical record (the Swann 
Catalogue is on the desk) and easily 
undersell A&A (who are equally obliging 
about ordering). Their discount Is 34 per 
cent off list except DGG, discount for 
which is one quarter. If you know what you 
want, this is clearly the best place to order

especially for some of the more 
^radically" programmed concerts. 

It has been estimated that with the 
advent of FM stereo the classical audience 
in large cities has risen 10 per cent taking 
into account the rise in population of 
course) and it Is evident that by the 
increasingly interesting programs and 
slate of top-name artists, musical en- 
trepreneurs in Toronto are doing 
something to fill the more in-depth re- 
quirements of a larger and yet more 
discriminating audience. 

The following list comprises musical 
enterprises and Institutions, with some 
minimum admission prices. 

Toronto Symphony: last season was 
the 50th anniversary of the TS and ap- 
parently the orchestra enjoyed a near 
capacity audience for the series A and B 
concerts. Besides Maestro Karel Anceri, 
Erich Leinsdorf, Seji Ozawa and Rafael 
Fruhbeck de Burgos will conduct the 100 
or so musicians. Guest artists include 
Jacqueline De Pre, Emll Gllels, Rudolph 
Serkin and Yehudl Menuhln — almost all 
visiting regulars now. Some Interesting 
programs are also promlsed:Mozarr's 
stunning requiem finally gets a Toronto 
hearing (June 23-4) after being passed 
over several times for Verdi's secular 
lament. Shostakovich's ninth symphony 
(April 3-4) and Somers' brilliant 
Passacaglla and Fugue (January 16-17) 
are two more anticipated works to be 

The two top series of 12 concerts 
each are A and B, costing $20 for the 
gallery. The B series is split in two at a cost 
of $13.50 for gallery seats. Phone 368- 
4631 for their brochure, or watch for full- 
page ads In the Toronto papers. 

Hart House and the Edward Johnson 
Building. There is of course the Hart 
House Orchestra and Boyd Neel, as well 
as Sunday evening concerts in the Great 
Hall. The Edward Johnson Building has 

50. But music-lovers will have the com- 
pany's production of Wagner's second act 
in his Ring Cycle, Siegfried, as well as the 
usual fare of re-processed Italian left- 
overs to look forward to Tosca, Alda and 
La Boheme. Eugene Onegln in English will 
prove a faux pas, I believe, as it turned out 
to be with the 1970 English production of 
Figaro. However, some outstanding 
singers, including Louis Quilico and Judith 
Forst. can't help but make the uninspired 
fare quite palatable. 

The cheapest seats are on opening 
night in the balcony at $9, but a better bet 
is really Wednesday or Thursday at 
$14.50. Saturdays In the rear or middle 
balconies are also a good bet at $18 for 
the series. 

Metropolitan Church. Many , 
churches In Toronto sponsor chamber 
recitals, and this is only one of the more 
ambitious of them. Students get in for a 
dollar. Imagine Bach's St. Matthew Pas- 
sion (April 14) for a buck (which is still a 
buck more than Bach's fellow parlshoners 
had to payl). Watch Watsup for dates. 

Wymllwood, The Royal Conservatory 
of Music, the Royal Ontario Museum and 
the Art Gallery of Ontario all have free 
concerts at some time during the year, 
and not so unprofessional as you might 
think. Also check with Goethe House 
(924-3327) for their surprisingly good 
programs (e.g. I believe Karlheinz 
Stockhousen Is to be hosted again this 
year) By IAN SCOTT 

to folk 



For all the attractive bargains and 
wide selection on the Toronto record 
market these days, there Is a dls- 

Folk, wooden or chansonnier music 
is still hanging in, maybe even rallying 
allghtly. The Rlverboat on Yorkvllle. and 
Grumbles on lower Jaryls Street bring in 
big names (Van Ronk, Hartford, Walker, 
Browne, etc.) at big name prices. When it 
is crowded you have to leave after one 
extended set; weeknights you can often 
stay for two. In between names and 
sometimes on the same nights are local 
musicians. Watch for Rolf Kempf at the 

Fiddler's Green on Tuesday and 
Friday nights, through the parking lot 
behind the YMCA. a block east of Eglinton 
( and Yonge, has the best in traditional 
music and local performers. The at- 
mosphere Is friendly and anyone can get 
up and play a few songs. Never costs 
more thaan $2, most of the time less. 489- 

The Whistle Stop operates Sunday 
nights In the house beside Fiddler's 
(through the parking lot, etc.). Local per- 
formers, most often quite good, plenty of 
guest sets, informal atmosphere. $.75. 

The Stanley Steamer operates 
Monday nights In the basement of Neil 
Wycik College, Gerrard, two blocks East 
of Yonge, the big red multi-story building. 
Local musicians, guest sets, loose at- 
mosphere, $1, 1 think. 

Fat Albert's runs Wednesday nights 
in the basement of Bloor St. United 
Church, Bloor at Huron, on the same 
policy as Stanley Steamer and the Whistle 

And way out on Eglinton Just East of 
Markham Road is The Coffeehouse, good 
local musicians on Friday and Saturday 
nights. $1. 

All of the above get going In the 
vicinity of nine o'clock.

A guide to university curriculum 


Here it is fall again and, as In past 
years, thousands of freshmen are entering 
the Arts Faculties of Ontario universities 
expecting educations they arenl going to 
get. Many, perhaps most, believe a B.A. 
will make them prime contenders for 
choice Jobs In Industry, government and 

A lot of them are in for 
disillusionment — not because the In- 
dustrial and bureaucratic elites wouldn't 
like to absorb them, but because the 
branch-plant Canadian economy simply is 
not geared to use the abundant human 
resources which the high schools and 
universities disgorge every year. 

Those who are in for an even greater 
disappointment, however, are the minority 
who come to university with the primary 
purpose of learning what the world Is all 
about. These are the fdealists — admitted- 
ly the high schools produce less and less 
such naive types each year — to whom the 
unlverlsty, especially the Unlveristy of 
Toronto, appears as a temple of the higher 
mysteries, a sanctuary of truth, where a 
carefully groomed priesthood pain- 
stakingly initiates the new generation of 
the elect into the secrets of the way the 
world runs. 

There are, unfortunately, many ways In 
which the University of Toronto does 
resemble the most hierarchical of 
churches and these have not been fun- 
damentally changed by the revisions of 
the top structure. U of T Is authoritarian 
and elitist In the style and form of its 
teaching-learning functions and of Its 
government. It is notably defensive about 
criticisms of its privileges and of Its role In 
the Ontario community emanating from 
the unenlightened — those who are not 
members of the priesthood, regardless of 
whether or not they are among the less 
than 10% of all Ontarians who have ever 
attended a university. But the worst aspect 
of this whole inflated metaphor is that the 
eager freshman will learn as much about 
the way the world really works In his 
classes at Toronto as he might have 
learned about heavenly truth In the cor- 
rupt Church of the Medici popes. 

The arts and social science students 
will be the chief victims of this gap 
between reality and the gospel according 
to most U of T professors (there are a few 
heretics of course — we're very liberal — 
but don't mention institutional political 
commitment, it's worse than birth control). 

The scientist will learn a lot about his 
physical environment and will probably 

become a fairly good employment 
prospect, even though he will get little Idea 
of the social implications of his knowledge 
or of the means by which It will be 
expropriated for the benefit of the very 

The arts student will study the 
intellectual playthings and the ideological 

emanations of all of Western man's past 
and present ruling classes. He will en- 
counter hardly any of the literary, 
philosophical, visual or with their 
"intellectual limitations," have obtained or 
expressed their awareness of their en- 
vironment. Unless his specialty Is esoteric, 
he will hardly even awaken to the ex-

istence of that European phenomenon, 
culture, In the non-Western world. In 
short, most of his old class and cultural 
prejudices will be expanded upon, up- 
lifted, and dignified by a flattering patina 
of intellectual jargon. 

The failure of the arts subjects to 
transcend the boundaries of upper-class 
Western culture Is compounded by the 
tendency of the academic disciplines to 
divorce all forms of artistic and Intellectual 
expression from the social and political 
milieu In which they developed. English 
and classics professors should not be 
sociologists, say the rules of the game 
(see Bronwen Wallace's excellent article 
on this subject in Winter, 1970, This 
Magazine is About Schools). The result of 
often a fraudulent transformation of the 
messages of spokesmen for particular 
classes and personality types within a 
society Into the spirit of a whole age. 

It is as if we took the views of The 
Globe and Mall or the New York Times as 
the quintessence of the attitudes of all 
Canadians or all Americans. Add to this 
factor the fragmentation of culture Into 
'Literature', 'Philosophy', 'Fine Art 
'Music' — ifs even a separate Faculty — 
and the dimensions of the problem 
become even clearer. 

The student trying to understand the 
world might hope that the social sciences 
would offer some sort of antidote to this 
incapacity of the university to comprehend 
man's experience in any given age as both 
diverse — in terms of the activities of 
different classes, races and sexes (how 
many women does history record?) — and 
integrated — in the sense of interplay both 
among these groups and among their 
various modes of self-expression, i.e. art, 
politics, economic activity and Intellectual 
creation. The social science curricula af- 
ford scant fulfilment of that hope. 

Anthropology courses focus chiefly 
on the exotica Ignored by other 
departments although this Is one dis- 
cipline in which a capacity for dealing with 
the integrity and interrelatedness of 
human experience has not entirely 

Psychology, sociology and political 
science all suffer from a tendecy to Im- 
pose the norms of mlddleclass behaviour 
and existing social arrangements on the 
subjects of their study. Their essential 
goal is to orient students to the Idea of 
society as a reconciliation system In which 
all interests and viewpoints can be, ac- 
comodated without messy conflicts and

Fragility in Tchaikowsky work 

Forst, Thomson and Rldeout fn Eugene Onegln 

The operas of Tchaikowsky are rarely performed 
and seeing Eugene Onegln staged last Saturday was a 
treat on this account. It Is an Intriguing opera, based on a 
story by Pushkin and changed by Tchaikowsky Into a fln- 
de-slecle conversation piece. The effect Is Interesting 
with Pushkin's tragedy dipped Into Tchalkowskys sugar- 
plum fairy powder, but emerging looking a little too 
refined. The contrasts of story and setting were not unlike 
an icon, with cold, Impassive visage framed by ornate 

After such a verbose preamble. It would be 
redundant to stress the weakness of the plot But one 
became aware of the burden placed on the singers who 
had to contend not only with Intricate {and ofter 
Inconsiderate) arias but also weak characterizations for 
all the main roles, save Tatyana. 

The acting Inability of Victor Braun was painfully 
exposed, as he sang the role of Onegln. As the haughty, 

self-assured playboy he was convincing; but In the final 
act his desperate pleas to Tatyana and crushing rejection 
by her were much less plausible. On the other hand Mr 
Braun was vocally superior and dominated the huge 
stage with his beautiful baritone voice.

China comes 
to the Ex; 
glut infects 
the midway 

"Do they know?" This was my first 
question at the startling announcement 
last year that the People's Republic of 
China were coming to the Canadian 
National Exhibition. The bamboo curtain 
was splintering, yes. and China was 
anxious to display the fruits of its collec- 
tivlst labor to jaded capitalist consumers 
But, surely, they had been somehow 
misinformed the "National" In the name 
had thrown them off, maybe, made 
them think that this was to be another 
Expo '67. another Flushing Meadows 
Fair, a little more folksey and loose 
possibly, but a big deal nonetheless. 

What would they say, then, when 
they arrived to find among their 
neighbors the sheep and swine pavilion, 
the stand where you could squirt 
mustard and catsup against a whirling 
canvas to make kaleidoscopic designs 
that "look and smell like the CNE", or the 
round-the-world rides on the midway, 
depleting their country as a never-never- 
land where buck-toothed coolies 
shuffled along under the benevolent 
smiles of Buddha? Heads would roll. 

There was a reason to go to the Ex 
now, at least a pretext. It was quite all 
right to gawk reverently at the lacquer 
were, even to supress a smile at the 
Chanman's sturdy homilies which I 
wrongly expected, would plaster the 
walls. But, though I was eager to see just 
what notes China would strike amid all 
the ricky-tlck of the fair, the rest of the Ex 
was starting to lure me, too. The midway 
is something of a twingelng tooth for me 
and my tongue keeps nudging over to 
prod it. 

fmm Mo h st ( o1 m y lif e. I lived a few miles 
from what was billed as the second 
biggest country fair In the U.S.A To oo 
was tantamount to a civic obligation and 
in a town without much else to do it was 
easy to find excuses for returning a 
second and a third time. It never oc- 
curred to me that I was free not to go 
though I hated it, as I had hated (a IlL

ends up as that ghastly after-hour spec- 
tacle, a geek. Usually a terminal 

alcoholic, a geek horrifies the yokels by 
biting the heads off Ifve chickens). 

Once I got over that picture, that 
melodrama about things and ways of life 
which I could not, then, imagine, the 
same old fairs began to attract me for 
precisely the same reasons that had 
repelled me before. It had been quite a 
while since I had let myself indulge a 
leering curiosity; China had now given 
me a pretext. One Friday afternoon I 
jumped on a Bathurst car and rode 
down; I would get the China pavilion out 
of the way at the start, leaving the night 
for voyeurism. 

The queue, rather surprisingly, 
completely circled the Queen Elizabeth 
Building, but It was moving along ef- 
ficiently. People were not loitering. I 
surmised. In The People's Republic 
Pavilion. The good Dr Bethune was there 
to greet us among the photo-studies of 
friendly solidarity. Beyond the foyer you 
couldn't help being struck by the heavy 
artillery: Lathes, gear nobbing machines 
and (my favorite) a bore core sample 
tracer. All were contoured, as If of 
plastic, in no-nonsense battleship grey. 

The walls were alight with color 
ransparencies. Oil refineries loomed 
large, making China look as exotic and 
inviting as Bayonne, New Jersey You 
could follow, as If in a World Economy 
schoolbooK the whole process from 
drilling to packaging. "Number 1505 drill

flasks as opulently as the shelves of

Ftusting Agents Number 3 and 4' What 
had happened to one and two? 

Agriculture was conspicuous "The 
capital construction of farmland is beinq 
vigorously carried out in the spirit of self- 
reliance and arduous struggle" Yes 
indeed. Meticulous reconstructions of 
terrain, the kind over which a spoonful of 
water, poured over high ground, will 
sluice in proper channels and not seep 

S£j$! °V h6 tiny bufldin 8S- Erosion. 
Scientific ploughing. Irrigation. Straight 
from that battered grade nine textbook' 
production of grain, of oils of 

Further on, another under-the- 
Christmas-tree model settlement- "The 
newly built village of Tachal". Tachal was 
no doubt a dream of efficiency and a 

happy home for its people, but I wasn't 

bowled over. But then, I'd seen It before 
and so have you. Do you remember the 

long, drab terraces of adjoining shacks, 
coal-towns, In How Green was My 
Valley? (You can see the same thing in 
the newsclips from Londonderry and 
Belfast.) Tachal was a company town. No 
doubt It was spanking clean and had free 
clinics, but the spectre of robber-baron 
industrialism was there. 

Leaving the rather sombre 
economic lessons behind, I stolled over 
the domestic displays, of the sort you 
might see a cross the way in the Live 
Better Electrically Utopia. There was the 
"Snowflake" refrigerator (no automatic 
ice-makers yet.) Two chubby phones, 
baby blue and canary yellow, every bit as 
ugly as Bell's "futuristic" instruments. 
The "Typical" sewing machine, (looking 
just like the one that gathered dust for 
years in my aunt's attic, but without the 
foot treadle), intricate gold filigrees 
curling up its sturdy frame. 

So far | had been peering at all 
these proudly selected exhibits with a 
kind of snide amusement; all right, with 
smug Western condescention. This is 
quite unfair. I know; we find this national 
pride rooted in bumper crops and oil 
refineries a little naive (but then have you 
taken a look at the back of the new ten- 
dollar bills?). Friends of mine who know 
these things, who can tell about 
machinery and electronic gear by 
looking at it, were impressed. Not quite 
up to western standards yet, clunkily 
designed, to be sure, but an enormous 
technological leap easy for us to forget It 
would be churlish to belittle their ac- 
complishment and to guy their pride 
Still, it is disquieting to see China 
steaming headlong Into the same sooty 
fallacies as the West. If it's good for the 
economy, its good, period. 

These were morose thoughts. There 
was still the rest of the exhibit, han- 
dicrafts and amusements, and the 
mechanisms of culture and leisure It 
would have been hearteningto see more 
of these things, but it was something that 
they were there at all. Five years ago I 
doub whether we would have seen 
anything of them. 

The Chinese liked tobacco (too 
much, I hear) and alcohol. This was 
obv.ous. Cigarettes with names like 
Coco Palms and Golden Camel caught 
the eye with sultry Arabian scenes, like 
Ang o-Amerlcan brands in the twenties 
- Mecca, Egyptian Prettiest, Fatimas - 
when smoking was still a foppish 
Eastern vice. (Westerners like to orlen- 
alize their vices; the Chinese get theirs 
trom the decadent West). 

There were varieties of Chinese 

vermouth, Special Fine Brandy, Chee 
Foo White Wine which came in 
something looking like a catsup bottle 
Other brands came in lavishly decorated 
pottery crocks. I wondered if we would 
soon be seeing Mao-tal, the brackish 
sorghum brandy, at the LCBO. 

A semblance of a queue still colle-S 
through the pavilion, kids poking at the 
scale models, women with shorts and 
varicose veins pushing baby strollers 
past the valve seals and anti-rustlng 
agents. The only real thickening of the 
line occurred arould the artifacts; often It 
was hard to get close. (You could have 
shot a cannon at the gear hobbing 
machine with only property damage 
resulting, by contrast). The clolssone, to 
my untrained eye, looked every bit as 
finely crafted as the Imperial lac- 
querware In the Royal Ontario Museum. 
There was a grouping of musical In- 
struments; how the violins and basoons 
would sound when accompanying such 
revolutionary masterworks as Taking 
Tiger Mountain by Strategy I don't know 
but they looked splendid. 

There were more artifacts, knick- 
knacks really, and these were less In- 
spiring. Figurines, every male torso 
bearing the ruddy cheeks and rippling 
musculature of socialist realism (I ke- V 
remembering Alex's ransacked lobby uf 
A Clockwork Orange, More carvings 
polntlessly Intricate dust-catchers. Have 
you ever seen those toothpick models of 
the Taj Mahal or Notre Dame that 
somebody has spent seven years and 
400,000 splinters of wood? You oh and 
ah over the craftsmanship and think 
god, what a monstrosity. 

The cascade of fabrics had scant 
appeal to Western eyes. The designs 
various stylizations of foliage, mostly' 
were close and busy, the colors' 
themselves hot and faded. Imagine a 
room upholstered and draped with these 
fabrics, fill it up with the lacquer cigarette 
boxes, some cloissone, a few laclly 
carved figurines. Throw a richly woven 
rug on the floor and a tepestry of 
admirable handicraft along the wall You 
might as well be in some barrister's 
study in the days just after Victoria, when 
dusty orlentalla cluttered the mansion- 
fiats of the realm. All the artifacts, all the I 
skillfull weavlngs, seem geared to a 
fading market, an imperial opulence a ' 
sense of booty and destinies that has 
almost totally let us. The East Is n-\ 
mysterious, the exhibit seemd J 
proclaim, it is deja-vu. We've been this 
way ourselves, 15, 20 years ago, a half- 
century even. 

As we left the 


September 22, 1972 

The Varsity 9 

loudspeakers from the grandstand 
played some bittersweet wartime song 
purring with saxophones. Sentimental 
Journey, Dreams? Or maybe Slow Boat 
to China? Nearby passed a man who 
might have stepped out of my junior hiqh 

A Shirt with short sleeves rolled up 
"nree turns {a pack of smokes tucked 
over his bleep), he left It unbuttoned over 
the whlte-bread-and-beer belly. Still 
using vaseline of his hair; not the 
stauchest sprays of the tv commercials 
could hold up that mid-fifties do, even If 
he used them. The whole mass the coy 
descriptive phrase, duck's ass, suddenly 
became clear to me) does bear an eerie 
resemblance to a duck, even down to the 
oiled feathers. 

How disorienting. These were the 
guys whom f, little brush-cut kfd, kept 
away from in school. The guys who took 
the auto-auto-mechanics course but 
wanted cars only for noisemakers, and 

damn the precision machinery. The ones 

This one's married now, trying to 
keep check on two little demons racing 
from the Zipper to the Wild Mouse. The 
wife sequined eyebrows on her 
sunglasses, a lumpy beehive of straw- 
colored hair, trails behind, bored. They 
looked so much older than me In high 
school I used to despair. They still do 
and l had a pang of compassion for all 
the wise toughs from those days who had 
sneered themselves into crummy 
installment-pian lives. 

All this sent me off to a reverie 
Sentimental journey, I mused, time trips 
County Fairs, exhibitions - what were 
they supposed to do? Bring the life of the 
cities, gaudy and neon-bright, to the 
hinterlands. Bring the future of 
sophisticated appliances, scientific 
marvels, new designs to the workaday 
present, The twenties and thirties with 
their mad, just around-the-corner 
dreams for the good life: just sit in your 
penthouse and push buttons, all day 
long. The Shape of Things to Come Ditto 
the well-oiled fifties, space-age fantasies 
every week In the magazine section in 
Lite and Collier's. 

Somewhere along the way the 
machinery got stuck in reverse. The 
hinterlands come to big cities, we step 
back a decade, or two or three. The 
sideshow lures us with clippings from the 
Arkansas Gazette, and we don't gawk 
we titter. We find out that those people 
from years ago are still around; where 
else do we see them anymore? The 
biggest attraction of all on the midway — 
go back, wherever you want. The fifties. 
The forties. That time between the wars. 
It's all there, waiting to be sniffed out. 

And how well The People's Republic 
blended in. At such forward-looking ex- 
travaganzas as Expo, China would have 
looked country-cousin Indeed Im- 
poverished little countries squandered 
their treasuries to keep up with the great- 
power Jonses, like Bette Davis in The 
Catered Affair. You couldn't imagine 
China doing that, even if it had begun to 
break out of Its self-made shell. So they 
chose the blowsy old CNE. Who would 
notice the chunky sets with screens the 
color of egg yolks boiled too long? Not 
the tired lines of people who spent their 
brief youth watching American Ban- 
dstand on just such a set. Or the 
unstylish dry goods, the garish bric-a- 
brac? Not the people who still see this 
stuff in Honest Ed's and who furnished 
their first flat with three rooms of fur- 
niture from a post-war emporium with 
easy budget terms, and who still had the 
end tables. 

Clever people (as an old expression 
marvels), these Chinese. 

The cooking smells along the 
midway were thick and exotic, like a 
brochette of innards smoking over coals 
in a North African bazaar. But we opted 
for the reliable fare over at Ontario Place 
which looks worlds away. "Labyrinth" 
was playing - it had been the hit of Expo 
67 I had heard - so we joined the lines 
snaking Into Clnesphere. That damn 
music from A Clockwork Orange 
ushered us In, (ominous, that), and we 
fidgeted through a third of an hour of 
split-split-screen lyricism, half Midnight 
Cowboy, half National Geographic "Is 
the last room empty?" asks the bilingual 
narrator, apropos of nothing, "or Is It 
filled with all the shapes and sounds In 
the world?" Good question, that I 
decided I was ready for a bracer stiff as a 
double bourbon: the fatty, Philistine 
lures of the midway. 

All day the sky had been the color of 
hot zinc, without a breeze. A singular 
odor collects over the fair on such a day 
and is the same all over the country It 
may vary a little, depending on which of 
its components predominates - 
manure, machinery oil and ozone can- 
vas, blackening grill grease. The essence 
remains, however; they could bottle It as 
now they bottle pungent raw musk-oil' as 
Carnival Cachet. This particular night a 
blanket of charcoal smoke, gritty with 
carcinogens, lay over the lights, and the 
stench of food sizzling In long-rancid fat 
cut easily through the other ripe smells. 

The genteel afternoon crowds 
those who had come for Better Living 
Electrically and the Food Pavilion and a 
browse through Cina, had mostly dls- 
appered, gone home or packed in the 
grandstand for the skirl of pipes and the 
swirl of kilts. The kids now possessed the 
midway, just a few days before the 
schools redevoured them 'til June. 

The younger they were, the less 
distinguishable. The boys* jeans flopped 
over white shoes with four, or two or five 
stripes, they all wore t-shlrts with funny 
things on them, and they rakishly jerked 
the hair out of their eyes. Their girls' 
almond-shaped faces peeped tentatively 
out from symmetrical cascades of hair 
They kept rhythm in their strides and In 
the mastication of their gum. Queueing 
up for the rides, It was boy-girl, boy-girl, 
boy-girl, only occasionally broken up by 
a gaggle of stag-visitors, who horsed 
around in the lines and only rode things 
that turned upside-down. 

Or there were the women, who 
travelled, like extra-careful nuns, in 
threes and who all wore pants suits. 
Mother and sister and daughter, or the 
three plain girls from the office. Mostly 
they walked up the midway and down 
again, shrelklng when one of them 
suggested they have their weights 
guessed, then blew the rest of the night 
on Bingo. One trio, out for laughs, ca- 
joled each other into a spree on the Wild 

cat. They bought their tickets only to find 
out that the seats were for two, and 
empty space is no way to run a business 
The odd-glr-out was shunted aside 
looking forlorn, soon to be paired off with 
one of the stag males, who endured the 
furtive japes of his companions. 

We strolled over to the side shows 
The Ape Girl, Princess Something, in an 
electronically sealed cage" would 
change into a gorilla, sprouting hair 
before you very eyes. $1000 if not true 
the come-ones wheedled, $1000 Further 
on, you could see such mutants as a 
sheep with five legs, and more arresting 
fauna. Rivalry ran high between the 
chicken with backward feathers and the 
one with fur Instead of feathers. The star 
attraction was the giant jungle rat-from 
the sewers of Hong King." 

The various neons of ferris wheels 
twisters, and all the whirling tourture- 
mstruments, glared and shifted against 
all the facades: Rattle Dattle Char- 
burgers, Laff in the Dark, a lurid sound 
and-llght show through the smokey 
haze. Peak feeding hours were past the 
high rancidity of the air had subsided to 
a point where any further diminution 
would have left me disappointed This 
chip-oil smell of badly run concessions 
usully apalls me. That night, It had hair) 
activated an odd set of cravings. 

There are genteel grandmothers 
(bless their twinkling blue eyes and blue 
hair) who won't miss the wrestling on 
their color consoles. There are people 
like myself who in mid-January, open the 
windows wide and douse the lights to 
squeeze every possible shiver from a two 
am horror movie. 

People, a lot of people I'll bet, go to 
these fairs and exhibitions and carnivals 
precisely to savour that perverse 
glamour. We crave vulgarity, the game 
savour of the raffish, mush as our bones 
crave calcium or our blood Iron. 

It's a relative thing, I suppose That 
woman with the beehive hair and 
sunglasses was right to be bored; the 
street she lives on probably dishes out 
every week as mush of the seamy side as 
I get to see all year. And spending 
evenings with Middlemarch or The Cam- 
bridge Ancient History probably Induces 
severe psychic deficiencies. Is It any 
accident that academics are the most 
voracious consumers (and producers) of 
shameless thrillers? There's some In- 
verse ratio at work here, even as the 
most successful flights of prose-poetry 
usually have the heavist ballast of the 
earthy, the clinical, the Philistine, or as 
the most charming cities (Venice, New 
Orleans) have their most elegant byways 
and palazzos abutting on the sordid and 
jazzy night towns. 

We have come to an attraction 
called The Chambre, which from the 
pictures of loosely veiled, uberously 
breasted women In every sort of con- 
tortion, seems to be a psychopath's wet 
dream. Loudspeakers coaxed us In. 
"See a young girl hung on a meathook," 
the voice rasped engagingly. "See a 
young girl on a bull-wheel being roasted 
alive." Cute little buys, pride of the cub 
scouts, were counting out their quarters. 
We began to move away. "It's a groovy 
happening," the voice "wheedled plain- 
tively, to our backs. Glut was beginning 
to set in, fast. 

The fireworks were spattering the 
sky as we milled down to board a street 
car, jammed with pastel pandas and 
outlandish sombreros. Stop and go up 
Bathurst, windows open to the close 
night. Outside the Wheat Sheaf Tavern, 
at King Street, a very drunk young 
woman in crimson hot-pants, very un- 
steady on her high-heeled black boots, 
shreiked after a gaunt laborer who was 
deserting her. Outside the Paddock, at 
Queen, somebody lay spread-eagled on 
the pavement. Nearby, a very old man 
poked vlslously through green garbage 
bags with his cane. 

At the Bathurst station, someone 
collapsed on the platform after smashing 
a bottle down against the tracks, putting 
a furtive mouse to flight. On the train, two 
kids, 13 or 14 at most, necked furiously. 
As the train braked to our stop, I watched 
a tired looked woman with a babushka 
lean forward to speak to the girl. A 
reprimand, I was sure. But no, she 
seemd to be the girl's mother, asking a 
question. Satisfied, she settled back to 
stare at the tunnel walls, and her 
daughter rejoined the embrace. The 
boy's t-shlrt asked the cutely stenciled 
question: "Wanna ball?" Glut had set in.

A guide fo university curriculum 

Continued from Page 14 

without departing radically from existing 
institutional and economic models. 
Deviant behaviour and social disruptions 
are treated as anomalous problems 
rooted In the personal or group failures of 
the individuals or "minorities" concerned 
or as temporary abberations in the es- 
sentially correct functioning of the system. 
There are exceptions to this pattern of 
analysis among Individual professors, but 
we are speaking of the general Impression 
conveyed by the curricula of these 

Economic courses by and large 
ignore the exploration of radical alter- 
natives to the existing mode of production 
and distribution of wealth, treat capital as 
an entity with a life of Its own rather than as 
the product of socially mobilized labour 
and human will, and bypass the political, 
social and cultural effects of American 
ownership of Canada. 

Non-development of the third world 
is interpreted in nearly every discipline as 
a failure of the indigenous social systems 
(which are usually not even studied as 
they were before outside Incursion) rather 
than as a by-product of centuries of Im- 
perialism and the capitalist organization of 
the world market. If only all peoples and all 
classes could be as rationally bureaucratic 
as the Western elites! (See, e.g., David 
Apter's Politics of Modernization, which 
tells us they Inevitably will be). 

It is a commonplace among those 
who have had experience of this and other 
universities to note that their government 
and the educational process within them 
are undemocratic and conducive to the 
development of master-servant 
relationships between teachers and 
taught, graduates and their fellow 

It Is less frequently pointed out that 
the very content of our education fails to 
acquaint student with the real life, 
thoughts and social experience of the 
mass of humanity in this and every other 
age. The articulate, the privileged and the 
victors of history are paraded before us 
year after year as the only real represen- 
tatives of life on this planet. And since 
most of us expect to join one or all of those 
categories, small wonder that we accept 
this fauous and untruthful version of past 
and existing reality, as the classicists ex- 
poind the virtures of stave-based, Imperial 
Athens, the medievalists tout scholastical 
hierarchy and feudalism, and the political 

scientists tell us the benefits of the war In 

Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Churchill, 
Franklin Roosevelt, Harold Wilson and 
pierre Elliot Trudeau are slyly pawned off 
on us as contributors to the development 
of the democratic Ideal, while Stalin and 
Brezhnev are passed off as the logical 
products of Marxist approaches to 
political problems. Major contributors to 
the growth of the democratic Idea such as 
Marsilius of Padua, Herder, Thomas 
Paine, Rosa Luxemburg and Frantz Fanon 
are virtually Ignored. 

And In an era when minor variants of 
the fascist form of government are main- 
stays of the free world and the Russian 
bloc, it is all but impossible to find a 
course In any department which deals with 
the history, politics, economic base (In- 
variable support by the biggest In- 
dustrialists, including British and 
American), psychology and sociology of 
the well-documented Instances of full- 
blown faclsm in the 1920's and "30's. 

These and other deficiencies of the 
university curriculum are commonly 
blamed on the evil machinations of the 
corporate elites who supposedly dominate 
the universities through their boards of 
governors. They have played their part In 
(he past, but in the present the buck need 
no longer be passed so far. Universities 

are controlled from within, and the enemy 
of free thought Is within. 

The fact is that It Is the faculty 
members, aided by a largely quiescent, 
unquestioning, upper-class or aspiring 
upper-class student body, who are 
responsible for the shoddy state of the 
academic community. Those professors 
who have the tenure and concomitant 
security which should enable them to act 
independently are themselves, for the 
most part, the internal pole In the un- 
iversity of the antl-democratlc, 
manipulative Canadian and American up- 
per classes (and NDP affiliation does not 
exonerate most professorial members of 
that party from this Indictment). 

If real changes are to be made, they 
will be made by the students In concert 
with a small minority of the present faculty. 
The method of achievement of such 
changes remains an enigma. The type of 
reforms from above attempted in the last 

classical record 

Continued from Page 13 

A & A Records (2 locations: 351 
Yonge above Bloor and 131 Bloor West, In 
the Colonnade). The Yonge Street store 
(upstairs) Is the best classical mart In 
town. It has frequent manufacturer's 
clearance sales, very wide selection of old 
releases, and a progressively campaign- 
like eagerness to stock recent releases. 
They will order records, but if It comes 
from Europe you'll know it by the stiff 
price. Prices are otherwise reasonable: 
$4.50 - 5.50 for regular releases and 99 
cents - $3.00 for bargain releases. Also a 
fair selection of 8-track cartridges and 
cassettes. Some reel to reel tapes, but at 
twice the price of an album — no wonder 
they're becoming obsolete. 

Sam the Record Man 347 Yonge, 
nudging A&A). Good classical section at 
the back of the first floor, with the 
standard bargain labels and prices (e- 
quivalent to A & A most of the time). A 
well-stocked renaissance and medieval 
music section is a nice surprise. 

Eaton's (190 Yonge at Queen). We 
shouldn't blame department stores for 
high prices, shallow selection. It Is the 
price the buyer pays for the convenience 
of having every other commodity at his 
disposal at the same location. Apologies 
aside, prices are high, choice limited. 
Chances are, record buffs don't require 
"every other commodity" and should 
know better. *

If we want a democratic education, a 
democratic, informed and Independent 
Canada, and a world In which men can 
again live as men we must canvas every 
alternative. And we must not be afraid to 
include the Ontario public, in whose name 
education Is conducted so duplicitously 
today, In our attempts at transformation. 
In this, as in most other aspects of the 
transformation. In this, as in most other 
aspects of the transformation of educa- 
tion, we have failed up to now.

Reprinted from the Victoria 
University 1970 Handbook. 

Simpson's (176 Yonge at Queen). 
Here Is a partial exception to the rule. 
While the rock section Is poor, the 
classical section Is not bad at all. If you 
don't know quite what you want, here Is a 
place to begin without being overwhelmed 
by an infinity of choices as is the case at A 
& A, for example. There Is a good 
selection of classical DGG cassettes, too, 
at regular (high) prices. 

The Book Cellar (2 locations: in the 
Charles Promenade belowBlooron Yonge, 
and on Yorkvllle, two blocks above Bloor 
off Avenue Rd.). Both stock exclusively 
classical records. The Charles St. location 
is poorly stocked with only Seraphlms 
which selling for a dime less than the 
regular bargain price of $2.39. The 
Yorkville location devotes a whole room to 
records. The setting is attractive, but the 
choise is limited to full-price ($5.00) 
Angels and DGG's. 

Target Tape (corner of Isabella and 
Yonge, 1 block south of Charles), A fairly 
good classical selection In cassettes and 
8-track, as well as a well-stocked rock 
section makes this the best tape mart 
downtown, but the prices seem somewhat 
ungenerously high for an all-tape store (in 
classical music). 

Circle of Sound (Toronto Dominion 
Concourse, King at Bay). High prices (e.g. 
Tournabouts, of which they have a fairly 
large stock, are selling for nearly $4 while 
A&A and Sam's price is about $2.75, fair 
selection in cassette and 8-track, In an 
attractive setting-you get what you pay for.

A guide to 
the theatre 

Theatre's version of Russian roulette, the 
subscription series, is upon us again. The theory is that 
you save a lot of money by paying a lump sum at the 
beginning of the season for which you receive seats at a 
discount. The butlet in the chamber is the quality of the 
shows themselves. A series ranges from four to eight 
shows and all the entries may be excellent. Or there 
might be one bomb, or two, or. . . 

The Royal Alexandra. 260 King St. W. (363-4211), as 
usual. Is first off the line; its series has already started, 
badly, with The Rothschilds. However, subscription rates 
are still being offered on the remaining live road shows. 
How the Other Half Lives, Irene. Henry IV, end Voyage 
Around My Father. For students, subscribing is about the 
only way to see these shows at a decent price. Seats for 
The Rothschilds vary from $15 for a pew in the orchestra, 
evenings, to a low of $4.50 for a seat up with the gods at a 
matinee. Subscription prices are $39 top down to $12.50 
for the five shows. These amounts are slightly above half 
price and are better than average for theatre ticket 
discounts in Toronto. 

The O'Keefe Centre, Front and Yonge. (363-6633), 
offers the largest subscription series with eight shows. 
Seven of these have been revealed to date: The Sound of 
Music, Two Gentlemen of Verone, Two by Two, Follies, 
The London Palladium Show, Ballade and Gone with the 
Wind. The price range Is stunning, from $60 for weekend 
orchestra seats to $18 for the rear balcony, only an 
Olymlc record javelin throw away from the stage. There 
are no student discounts on subscriptions because the 
prices have already been reduced. The O'Keefe does 
offer a good deal on its many non-subscription 
attractions like the Canadian Opera Company and the 
National Ballet. 

Students are admitted for half price to Wednesday 
and Saturday matinees and to evening performances on 
student standby after 7 p.m. if ticket sales are slow. 

The best place to see straight drama, although it is 
not always the best drama, Is the St. Lawrence Centre, 
Front just east of Yonge, (366-7723). Toronto's only large 
rep theatre this year offers five plays in its season: The 
Trial, Twelfth Night. A Touch of the Poet, Electra and Les 
Belles Soeurs. It is a conservative selection, designed to 
eliminate memories of previous experiments that ended 
in disaster and to consolidate a growing corps of 
followers. The St. Lawrence keeps Its prices reasonable 
at $25 top for the five shows and if you want to go to 
Saturday matinee previews, it's $5 for the lot. That's 
cheaper than a good many movies around. 

Several of the smaller companies have also gone 
the pay now. play later route. Oldest of these is Toronto 
Workshop Productions, 12 Alexander St. (925-8640). 
Students can pay $10 to see five plays: Hey Rube!, The 
Inspector-General, Indiens, Letters From the Earth and 

The Good. Soldier Schweik. Three of the plays are either 
original material or adapted by the workshop which has a 
long standing reputation for innovative and exciting 

The University Alumni Dramatic Club, after years in 
coach houses all over the city, seem to have found a 
permanent home in the new Flrehall Theatre, Adelaide 
and Berkeley. (241-0112). Oddly enough, the theatre is a 
converted 19th Century fireball and a piece o? local 
architectural memorabilia. To celebrate, the UADC offers 
its first subscription series of four plays: The Plough and 
the Stars, Le Temps Sauvage. The Women and The 
Zykovs. A subscription is $8 but does not save the 
student any money unless he wants to attend on Friday or 
Saturday night when the standard student price goes up 
from $2 to $3. 

The Menagerie Players has a four play subscription 
season at the Central Library Theatre, College and St. 
George, (924-8950). If Oh Dad, Poor Dad, the first In the 
series, Is any indication, this group's productions should 
be taken one at a time and after careful consideration, 
rather than In a lump on speculation. 

One other group, Classic Stage Productions, has 
begun an eight play season, no subscription, at the 
Colonnade Threatre. And It Its first production Is any 
Indication, it is just as well that no series has been 

The only organization on campus that has thus far 
announced a season Is Hart House Theatre. Now that the 
economic crunch has come, Hart House has abandoned 
its policy of presenting seldom-seen {often with good 
reason) plays and Is trying more well-known and popular 
fare In order to increase Interest and box office. Only 
three plays instead of the usual four win be presented this 
year: The Misanthrope. Rosmersholm and Hamlet. 
Watch the Varsity and posters tor announcements of 
productions by other campus groups. 

The other theatres in Toronto seem to work, in 
public at least, on a pro tern basis. Two of them are now 
presenting works. Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgman St., 
(964-8833) has Leaving Home, a successful piece being 
revived from last season. Wednesday a new Canadian 
play, Foul Play, opens at the Factory Lab Theatre, 374 
Dupont St. (921-5989). 

Other experimental small theatres are Theatre 
Passe Muralile, 11 Trinity Square (366-3376); Global 
Village, 17 St. Joseph St. (964-0035); Studio Lab, 209 
Adelaide St. E. (366-6451); Actors' Theatre. 390 Dupont 
St., (923-9792). These can offer most absorbing and 
creative theatre. 

The Theatre In the Dell, formerly the only surviving 
home of the revue In Toronto, will present a double bill of 
straight, non-musical comedies, opelng October 2 for a 
three month run.

Intransigence threatens Loyola-SGW 

Intrasigence and traditionalism 
from the Loyola Faculty of Science 
may scuttle merger negotiations 
between Loyola College and Sir 
George Williams University. 

Although spokesmen claim the 
top-level talks are going well, the 
Loyola science professors are bitter- 
ly opposed to their administration's 
willingness to eliminate an honors 
program from Loyola's science 

A proposal from Loyola vice- 
president Joe Burke during the 
summer called for a Faculty of 
Science at Sir George, containing 
honors, majors and interdisciplinary 
programs, while the Loyola division 
of science would have only majors 
and an interdisciplinary program, 

According to the Burke 
document, the new federated un- 
iversity would contain faculties of 
arts, science, commerce and ad- 
ministration, and a Loyola faculty 
which would specialize in the 
humanities, social sciences. 

technology, commerce and the 
natural sciences. 

The science faculty here is being 
unrealistic about its position," 
Loyola's domestic committee 
member Mark Tigh said. "They're 
not willing to compromise one bit 
by fighting to keep the honors 

He termed identical science 
faculties on each campus 
"unfeasible" as long as enrolment 
continues to decline. 

Although the Burke proposal was 
rejected by Sir George Williams 
officials, it stood as the working 
document for the merger talks. The 
negotiating committee has now 
agreed on another document which 
retains the features unacceptable to 
Loyola's science faculty. 

It calls for faculties of arts and of 
science at Sir George, two 
university-wide faculties of com- 
merce and business administration 
and of engineering, and the faculty 
of Loyola College with divisions of 
arts and science. 


Canadian complicity 
in Vietnam attacked 


The Executive Secretary of the 
Vietnam Mobilization Committee 
Wednesday attacked Canadian 
complicity in the war. 

Speaking to a meeting of about 25 
people sponsored by the U of T 
Committee to End the War in Viet- 
nan, Rivhard De Gaetano said that 
despite world-wide opposition to 
American escalation of the air war 
and their bombing of the dikes, 
"Canada continues to apologize for 
the Americans and pretend that (hey 
are scaling it down". 

In fact, he continued, "The U.S. 
is dropping bombs and killing Viet- 
namese at an unparallelled rate." 

According to De Gaetano, most 
Canadians are resistant to any no- 
tion of Canadian guilt concerning 
the war. "The fact is," he stated, 
"that Canada is the U.S.'s largest 
supplier of war related materials and 
the world's third largest exporter of 
war supplies." 

De Gaetano said that the actions 
of the antt-war movement and the 
impact of world opinion has led 
American troops to engage in what 
amounted to "open rebellion against 
their officers". 

Incidents in which soldiers would 
refuse en masse to obey the orders of 
a superior officer and numerous 
outright attacks on officers with 
fragmentary bombs, "were the 
direct result of the actions of the 
anti-war movement," he claimed. 
These also "eventually forced Nixon 
to change his strategy." 

He said that because of the 
consequent escalation of the air war 
and the bombings of the dikes, the 
war is now entering a critical stage. 

"With monsoon rains expected to 
be heavier than ever because of 
American seeding of rain clouds, if 
the United States does indeed 
succeed in destroying the dikes, as 
many as fifteen million people could 
consequently die by drowning or 

De Gaetano emphasized that the 
North Vietnamese will never sur- 
render to the Americans, but that 
even if they win on the ground, 
facing America's "automated and 
computerized air war with outdated 
weaponery" they can only win a 
Phyrric victory." 

The Vietnam Mobilization 
Committee plans to stage demon- 
strations across Canada against the 
war on November 8. 

The document ended a threat to 
Loyola's Faculty of Commerce 
which had been slated for complete 
integration with the Sir George 
faculty, eliminating what is general- 
ly considered one of Loyola's most 
innovative departments. 

The plan was approved recently 

by the Sir George Board of Gover- 
nors and received Monday by the 
Loyola Board of Trustees. 

Loyola science professors 
consider their honor students their 
"best students". They fear the loss of 
their honors program in the merged 
university would represent a loss in 

importance for the faculty. 

But Loyola spokesmen say the 
general trend in science is toward 
interdisciplinary studies along liberal 
arts lines, while the need for specializa- 
tion is declining. The Loyola Science 
faculty appears obsessed with

Hellyer says Tories will 
end inflation, unemployment 


"Elect Bob Stanfield and the government that will 
change the course of Canadian history," urged Paul 
Hellyer yesterday afternoon. 

Hellyer, conservative candidate for Trinity and a 
former Liberal cabinet minister was speaking at a 
meeting sponsored by the U of T PC club in Hart 
House. Only a dozen people attended the meeting. 

Hellyer said he joined the PC's because the party 
will change the direction of the management of Canada 
and is the most open of all the parties to new ideas. 

He asserted that the business cycle is not 
inevitable, instead advocating solving unemployment 
and inflation by control over monopolies. 

"We have the worst run economy in the Western 
world," he charged, using graphs and charts of 
comparative wages and prices in Canada and fourteen 
other countries, to support his point. 

He staled that inflation can be reduced to three per 
cent in Canada. "1 think it would be closer to two per 
cent," he added "but I pick three because it's a 
Conservative figure." Several members of the audience 

Hellyer's controls would not be used on small 
businesses, only unions and big corporations. He 

posited that if all wage increases were limited to the real 
average increase in productivity in industries such as 
steel, glass and automobiles, there would be no 
inflation. His three per cent figure is based partially on 
the fact that 30 per cent of the goods Canada consumes 
are irriports. 

The minimum wage could be brought up and jobs 
provided to eliminate unemployment, Hellyer said. 
Thus the "paternalistic Big Brother" attitude of 
bureaucracies toward the unemployed could be 

People would have a greater range in housing 
choice, he claimed. p 

Though a great deal of media support would be 
needed to convince Canadians of the need for controls, 
Hellyer does not think it will be hard to sell the idea, 
because of its advantages. He said it is simply a 
"question of thinking through something that is 
rational" and claimed that 70 per cent of Canadians 
already favour such controls. 

Asked what he would do to prevent situations like 
the high density apartment growth in downtown Toron- 
to and landgrabbing by major developers, Hellyer said 
that he is opposed to the rezoning of single family 
dwelling areas. 

Education faculty expands 

Huron parkette slated to disappear 

This park at Huron and Washington will vanish If expansion plans go ahead. 

The Huron-Washington parkette 
has been given only 18 months to 
live. The death sentence was ap- 
parently confirmed this week by 
Keil Gregory of the U of T's office 
of business affairs. 

Alan McAllister, spokesman for 
the Committee on the Huron- 
Washington Parkette, originally 
reported that the U of T planned to 
let the park exist only 18 months. 

The Faculty of Education 
building, at Bloor and Spadina, is 
\ planned to expand to encompass the 
whole block containing the park. 
The parkette, just opposite several 
Campus Co-Op residences, came 
into being when local residents dis- 
covered that the vacant lot was not 
going to be used for building in the 
^ near future. 

; % The land on which the park was 
§ established is apparently owned by 
the provincial government, although 
' Gregory was not able to explain its 
o- status. The college will have money 
^ available for the extension to its 
§ crowded facilities, and it is only a 
matter of time before architects' 
plans are drawn up and construction 

is started. 

At first, Gregory said there would 
be a "college extension built in two 
to three years". 

Asked about the 18-month 
deadline for the park, he then ad- 
mitted that it was "quite possible". 
However, Gregory did not know 
what body was making the decision 
on the Faculty of Education 

Present plans for the extension 
require the entire north side of 
Washington Ave. As of last April, 
the provincial government had 
bought all required land with the 
exception of one house. 

Despite residents' complaints and 
suggestions that the building extend 
only to backyard lines, the plan has 
not been changed. 

Gregory said Monday that he was 
"quite sure that the architects are 
thinking of eliminating the 
parkette". Questioned as to whether 
or not the architects had considered 
building the extension vertically in- 
stead of laterally, Gregory 
answered, "I'm sure they will have 
considered everything."

Weitz charged that mental

He went on to outline many of 
the dehumanizing features of mental 
institutions, features which "control 
rather than liberate" the patient. 

Among them were pacification 
by drugs and shock treatment, in- 
timidation through the use of psy- 
chiatric interrogation and' 
withdrawal of basic rights. Patients 
are often deprived of the right to 
leave their rooms or even to wear 
their own clothes, he said. 

Under such circumstances, he 
charged, they soon begin to feel like 
"irresponsible, mad children." 

Criticizing government policy, 
Weitz noted that during oc- 

cupational therapy, patients are 
often paid "less than one third of the 
minimum wage in Ontario" for their 

Jan Dukszta, former staff 
psychiatrist at the Queen St. Centre 
and NDP, MPP for Parkdale, 
asserted that the time is past for 
lengthy incarceration. "For too 
long," hej said, "we have tolerated 
the approach 'out of sight, out of 
mind". We put away people who 
bother us." 

According to Dukszta,, many 
people seek out psychiatric help 
more "because of social causes — 
differences at home, differing work 
situations, and less from what has 
been called mental illness." 

He advocated the concept of a 
community support system as the 
only viable alternative to an in- 
stiiutional one. Under such a 
system, he felt, community workers 
would increasingly replace "over- 
i rained professionals". 

Other speakers at the forum 
complained about poor or in- 
adequate hospital facilities, over- 
drugging of patients and an un- 
responsive or inaccessible hospital 

Panelist Edward Greenspan, a 
Toronto lawyer, was highly critical 
of the 1970 Mental Health Act, 
which allows victims to be easily 
deprived of their civil rights. 

He singled out one "dreaded" 

section which permits a review 
board lo determine privately, 
without patient consultation, 
whether a patient will be released. 

One slated speaker, a 
psychiatric patient, failed to appear. 
Tori Salter, chairman of the forum, 
explained that the patient feared 
recriminations if she publicly 
criticized the hospital where she is 
being treated.

Scar expressway proposed 

1,200 homes threatened 


A spectre haunts at least 1200 homes in 
east Metro: the proposed Scarborough ex- 
pressway. Whether it will be temporarily 
defeated depends on the unknown strength or 
east-end Torontonians, and the new tactics 
heing used by Metro to push it through. 

The Scarborough is to be a continuation 
of the Gardiner Expressway eastward, in- 
tended eventually to link up with Highway 
401. Twelve hundred working class homes, 
many or them already owned by Metro, and 
acres of valuable parkland are threatened by 
the proposal. 

The expressway was first conceived in 
1943. Its functional plan was approved by 
Metro Council in 1957, and $30 million was 
voted for the Scarborough with the proviso 
that ". . .$2,100,000 is to be debentured for 
acquisition of land only." Approximately 150 
acres of land was acqured at this time. 

The Ontario Municipal Board's original 
order was animended in 1965 to provide a 
further $3 million for land and engineering 
costs. In 1967 the functional design of the 
expressway was approved by Metro Council. 
Metro proceeded to acquire another 220 
properties between Leslie and Birchmount 
(making it east Toronto's second largest land- 
owner). Jusl four years ago, the OMB ap- 
proved Metro's application to build the Scar- 
borough from Leslie to a point 3000 feet east 
of Birchmount at a cost of $102.5 million. 

The expressway seemed to be a fait 
accompli, but opposition to the Spadina 
Expressway was beginning to change the 
acquiescent temper of east-end home-owners. 
Pending the decision of the Ontario cabinet 
on the Spadina, the OMB spurned Metro's 
previous application for funds. 

Under section 42 of the Ontario 
Municipal Board Act, the OMB has the right 
to review its own decisions. It has ordered 
Metro to make a new application and report 
justifying the Scarborough Expressway. But 
Metro, recalling past battles, is un- 
derstandably wary of the OMB; its Scar- 
borough strategies are quite different from 
those that may have lost Metro the Spadina. 

Metro has chosen not to comply with the 
OMB order to reapply for and rejustify the 
expressway. Rather it has gone to the Provin- 
cial Court of Appeal. It claims that section 42 
of the OMB Act is illegal, and that the OMB 
does not have the right to review its approval. 

"Metro is playing this quietly," said 
Dorothy Thomas of ForWard 9, a local 
citizens' group. 

"That's why they're going to court 
instead of to the OMB, They want to avoid

pressway." ForWard 9 is preparing to fight 
for an OMB review as far as the supreme 
court if necessary. 

Dorothy Thomas is running for alderman 
in the '72 municipal elections on a platform of 
opposition to the expressway. 

Reid Scott, the incumbent alderman, 
holds basically the same position: "The 
proposal as it stands isn't adequate. 35,000 
cars are coming off the Gardiner into the area 
every night and there' certainly is a traffic 
problem; but we need more study to get the 
best" solution." 

Andrew Brewin, MP, and Tom Wardle, 
MPP. have both conducted polls which show 
2: 1 support in Ward 9 for the expressway. 
However, Scott points out that the polls were 
loaded with questions such as, "Are you in 
favour of the expressway to cut down 

pollution?" "The majority of those living in 
the path of the expressway oppose it," says 
Gerry Thompson of ForWard 9, "as do those 
who are aware of the route or its effects on 
the area." 

What are the merits of the expressway? 
The Joint Technical Transportation Planning 
Committee has prepared a report, not for the 
OM B. but for the Metro Chief Executive. Not 
surprisingly, the report recommends that "an 
active programme for the protection and 
ucquistion of the right-of-way (i.e. buying 
houses) be reinstated immediately. . ." 

While the report states that present 
traffic in the east end is "not enough to justify 
the construction of costly additional 
facilities", there are other reasons for its

easterly extension of the Frederick G. Gar- 
diner Expressway", has acquired a new title in 
the report: "the Lakeshore Transportation 
Corridor". The expressway, then, is seen as an 
element of a province-wide tourist and com- 
merical transport network. Its construction 
will make it easier for commercial traffic 
from the east to reach the downtown, and will 
provide a transport route to and from dow- 
ntown Toronto and the cottage country to the 

The expressway also serves to fill a gap in 
the city's cross-town linkage system, carrying 
suburban traffic from east and north Scar- 
borougn and Pickering to central Toronto, 
and to other expressways in the Metropolitan 

Kingston Road, the present link between 
the Gardiner and the 40I, is a "grossly 
inadequate" part of the grand scheme. Yet a 
1 967 engineering study promises that the 
Scarborough expressway's special ramps and 
interchanges will actually generate traffic on 
Eastern Ave., Queen Street and Kingston 
Road, instead of lightening the load. 

Secondly, "the improvement of the 
transport system within the Borough of Scar- 
borough and east of Metro is an important 
i ncenti ve to economic expansion . . 
.stimulating the eastern corridor to a higher 
growth rate, "The expressway is an important 
part of the Toronto Centered Region Plan to 
urbanize from Bowmanville to Hamilton by 
the year 2000. 

The importance of the expressway is 
underlined when the report explains that 
urban problems — sprawl and social 
problems — far from being the result of hasty 
commercial developement and lack of social 
planning, are caused by "inefficienceies in the 
provision of economic, transportation and 
service networks." 

Thirdly, the recreational needs of 
Scarborough and southeast Toronto require 
transportation to the cottage country and to 
downtown. Ironically, however, if the ex- 
pressway is constructed, it would affect east 
Toronto's three major parks. Eastwood and 
Oakcrest parks would be destroyed; both are 
(he only parks in their respective areas. 

The ambiguity of the merits of 
expressways will be obvious to Scarborough 
College students, while the route of the ex- 
pressway has not been disclosed past 
Birchmount, it will cut diagonally somewhere 
just south of the College to join with the 401 
further east. If the Scarborough is built, 
students will travel to the College quickly and 
easily. They will have more access and closer 
links to the downtown. However, if it is built, 
it may disturb local ravines, add to the volume 
of traffic and raise nearby land values.

Rotenberg wonts more power 


"I wanl the power and prestige of 
the mayoralty." executive alderman 
and candidate for mayor David 
Rotenberg told an audience at Holy 
Trinity Church yesterday. 

He explained that if he were 
elected. Toronto could expect thai 
he would use the "power and 
prestige" of the position to continue 
the policies he has been pushing in 
his three years on the city executive. 

In his term, he said, city 

government would function in. "a 
belter and more open manner", 
;illhough he did not elaborate on 
how this would happen. 

Rotenberg didn't disagree with a 
statement from interviewer Stephen 
Clarkson Liberal candidate for 
mayor in 1969 that in the past three 
years, Rotenberg, as budget chief 
and executive alderman, has already 
been "the real power at City Hall". 
The position of mayor, he said, 
would make it easier to carry out his 

policies because of the weight at- 
tached to the post. 

Questioned about the 
controversial issue of high-rise 
development. Rotenberg avoided 
dealing with the problem directly, 
but stated that he followed the 
Toronto official plan on this ques- 
tion. Where the official plan per- 
mitted high-rises, he said, he voted 
for them, where it didn't he voted 
against them. 
He said that he thought that a 

"reasonable balance between low 
and high density housing" now ex- 
ists in Toronto, and denied that he 
was either "pro-developer" or "anti- 
developer". {Rotenberg is con- 
sidered one of the chief "old guard", 
pro-development members of coun- 
cil by citizens' group). 

On the question of how plans and 
policies or development should be 
formulated, he indicated that 
decisions should be made by the 
"elected representatives" rather 
than by citizens' or neighbourhood 

The city government should be 
advised by its own planning board as 
now, he said, (A majority of present 
planning board members are present 
or past aldermen). 

He did say, however, that panels 

of citizens should "provide feed-in" 
for the planning board, on which it 
could partially base its decisions. 

He reaffirmed his support for the 
Spadina Expressway, which he said 
would help solve the "major traffic 
problem" in the northwest sector of 
Metro, something rapid transit 
could not do alone. 

Rotenberg denied that his 
connections within the Conservative 
Party (he was a senior organizer of 
ex- Provincial Treasurer Darcy 
McKeough's leadership bid) would 
play an important part in his cam- 
paign or would have an effect on his 
relations to the Tory government in 
Queen's Park after he is elected. 

"National political parties have 
no basis at City Hall", he said.

Information about stack access to the Roberts Library, and 
Faculty of Education Student Union plans to attempt to withdrew 
from membership in the Students' Administrative Council 
published in Wednesday's Versify was fneccurate. 

The library story incorrectly stated that stack access to the 
Roberts Llbrery will be automatically granted to teaching staff and 
graduate students. According to plans adopted by the academic 
Senate last spring, no one will have automatic stack access. 

Instead, all members of the university community wishing 
entry to the stacks will have to apply for e steck pass. Passes will be 
issued, technicelly, according to academic need and not 
academic rank. The passes will be tor periods of time varying 
from one day to one year. 

tn practice, teaching staff and graduate students will 
probably have less difficulty in securing extended stack passes 
than other members of the university community, especially In 
light of university plans to refurbish the Sigmund Samuel Library 
as a central undergraduate library. 

Faculty of Education Student Union withdrawal plans have 
apparently been dropped over the summer, es relations with SAC 
have improved. 

A withdrawal request would have to come from the Student 
Union Assembly, which has not been elected for this year. j

Rowing Club 
future in doubt: 
boatmen needed 

Poor turn-out for the U of T 
Rowing Club in past years is one of 
the reasons why practice sessions 
have been changed from morning to 
evening. New recruits are badly 

However, "There are a number of 
other reasons for the switch", said 
Geoff Wright, last year's Varsity 

"Last year the Argonaut Rowing 
Club (the rowing team's point of 
departure for practice) obtained the 
services of Tudor Bompa, former 
Romanian National Coach", said 
Wrighl. "Tudor offered us his ser- 
vices last year but he was only free in 
the evenings", Wright added. 
"Tudor also felt that an evening 
training regime is more 
physiologically sound." 

These reasons, plus the fact that 
for years people expressed interest in 
rowing but showed disdain for early 
morning practices, caused the 
change to evening practices. 

However, according to Wright, 
the "turn-out for practices this year 
is terrible, and we may have trouble 
boating crews. Part of the problem 
was caused when some of the more 
experienced oarsmen graduated. In 
addition, a number of those who are 
interested have evening classes 
which conflict with the practices." 

"The problem is compounded, 
Wright added, "because there is a 
genera! shift away from organized 
intercollegiate sports, Furthermore, 

the transformation of the St. George 
campus into honours, professional, 
and graduate courses, and away 
from a general program serves to 
eliminate interest in the less well- 
known sports." 

"The distances are extreme for 
students from either Erindale or 
Scarborough while students on the 
downtown campus who are closer to 
the Argonaut Club have appeared 
to lose interest." 

"We anticipated this possibility", 
Wright said, "and tried to start 
rowing at Erindale College, situated 
only one-half mile from the Don 
Rowing Club. We thought that it 
would catch on there, since it allows 
Erindale students to participate in 
an intercollegiate sport located 
much closer to their campus — and 
yet. the participation at Erindale has 
been no greater." 

According to Wright, the Rowing 
Club offers a variety of competitive 
categories. These include categories 
based on weight (under 1 55 lbs. and 
heavyweight), and experience 
(novice, junior, and senior). 
"Although we need people in all 
categories", Wright explained, "we 
are most anxious to attract people in 
first or second years". 

The Canadian rowing clubs are 
now starting to prepare for the 
Montreal Olympics in 1976 and new 
recruits are the people most likely to 
attend, according to Wright. In ad- 
dition, the Sports Canada athletic

Other Teams - Eastern Section 

This year is shaping up as a 
repetition of lasl year's final con- 
frontation helween Western 
Mustangs and the Ottawa Gee Gees. 

While Western poses as a long- 
range threat lor the Blues, the im- 
mediate challenge is to gel past 
Queens and Ottawa. The only other 
teuni in the Eastern Section the 
Carleton Ravens have not displayed 
atiy improvement so far this year 
over their past season's showing. At 
the least, the Blues should finish 

The Gee Gees, who defeated 
McMaster Marauders I8-9 in the 
semi-finals last season, were 
defeated by Western Mustangs 13-0 
in the final. With the new league 
structure. Ottawa comes into con- 
tention with Queen's in both home 
and away games. The competition 
should be hottest between these two 
teams this vear. 

Although only 18 players from 
lasl year's Gee Gee squad have 
relumed, two of the returnees are 
tight end John Rodrigue and Paul 
Kilger on defence. (Both are OUAA 
and All Canadians in their positions). 
Also, Gil Sabourin (OUAA All 
Star) will return as defensive half- 
back. Quarterback Dan Smith 
has had experience with the McGill 
Redmen and appears capable in this 
position, as demonstrated by his 
performance in Toronto last Satur- 
day. Fullback Neil Lumsden also 
looked promising lasl Saturday 
against the Blues. He ran for 120 
yards on 19 carries, handles the Gee 
Gees' punting and place-kicking 
chores, and was even available to 
block in the Oltawa team's 

This so-called Ottawa "rebuilding 
year" may result in a team that is 
stronger than the lasl one, and 
almost certainly no weaker. A good 
indication should come tomorrow 
when the (ice Gees play Queen's in 
Kingston. Last year, Ottawa 
defeated Queens 26-17 in Kingston. 

Queen's University Golden Gaels 


( 33* plus 2t tax) 

are. in a word, strong. Although the 
K ingston squad lost in the semi-final 
lasl year 42-3 to Western, it 
nevertheless finished ahead of 
Carleton and Toronto last season. 
Although Queens lost narrowly to 
Toronto at Varsity Sladium 31-29, 

the Gaels defeated Toronto in 
Kingston 28-25. 

The rivalry should be continued 
again this year, although Queen's 
appears from its first game last 
Sunday to have another strong 
team. The Gaels defeated Carleton's 

Ravens 33-0. 

Frank Tindall, starting his 25th 
year as coach will have a veteran 
backfield, but the progress of the 
offensive line will be important to 
Queen's overall success. The offen- 
sive back fielders pose a serious 

threat to an opposing team's 
defence. However, if last Sunday's 
game is any indication of future 
play, ihe Gaels offence will be chief- 
ly along ihe ground. Against 
Carleton the team had only 37 yards 
passing, but 207 yards rushing. 

Gord McLelland and Brian 
Warrender lied for the scoring lead 
in the OUAA last season. Their 12 
touchdowns (each) set a season touc- 
down record, as welt as a season 
scoring record. Last Sunday 
Warrender gained 84 yards on 16 
carries and Dave Hadden had 62 
yards on 1 1 carries. Doug Cozac, 
Gaels' kicker and punter, moved to 
within five points of the all-time 
team scoring record, kicking two 
converts and one field goal in the 
game. Gaels quarterback Tom 
Taylor was 5 for 16, two of which 
went for touchdowns. 

At the moment, Carleton Ravens 
appear to be the weakest team in the 
east, even though quarterback Dave 
Redmond is equally adept at passing 
or running. However, he is begin- 
ning his second year as a starter and 
could prove to be a valuable leader 
for the Ravens. Receiver for Red- 
mond's passes is often Don Gormley 
(OUAA All Star) who averaged 
34.4 yards a reception last year, 
catching 15 passes. 

Outside linebacker Chris Harber 
(another OUAA All Star) is also the 
Ravens' kicker. Lasl season, he led 
the Eastern section with an average 
of 40.5 yards per kick. Last season, 
the Blues lost their season opener to 
the Ravens 12-3 , but gained a win in 
early October at home, downing the 
Ravens 22-2. 

Only the top Eastern Section 
team will make the play-offs this 
season because of the restructured 
league. Queen's and Ottawa are 
likely contenders for first Place, 
with Toronto and Carleton coming 
third and fourth. . . ed

Structure of Intramural Sports bureaucracy 

The intramural (interfaculty) sports program 
begins another season next week with a reaorganized 

By this fall the "Sub-Committee on 
Restructuring", appointed by the Intramural Sports 
Committee in November 1971 issued its report, It was 
set up "to study the present intramural organization 
and to consider some restructuring of the program". 

The report states that "the sub-committee met on 
three occasions" and "The members recognized that 
the existing program was structured along solely com- 
petitive lines and there was considerable discussion as to 
the desirability of moving towards a more recreational 

Furthermore, "the committee was aware of the 
looser, less structured programs being offered at other 
universities and was concerned with the lack of purely 
recreational activities being offered at U of T." 

Secretary of the Intramural Sports Committee 
Dave Copp, "pointed out that the present program had 
evolved over a period of 35 years and was really an 
inter-college league", said the report. The report added 
that "facilities had placed severe limitations on the 
development of activities. To maximize use of in- 
adequate facilities, it becomes necessary to plan virtual- 
ly every minute they are available. This severely 
restricts their recreational and unstructured use." 

In effect ihe Sub-Committee made the following 

•"lhal the present competitive program should be 
continued with certain minor modifications." 
•"lhat activities of a more recreational nature be 
sponsored by the UTAA through the Intramural 

•"that co-ed activities be sponsored in co-opration with 
the WAA", 

•"thai since the Benson Building at present closes at 9 
pm. arrangements to be made to run activities there 
belween 9 and 1 1 pm." 

The intramural program covers almost a dozen 
team sports including football,soccer, and lacrosse as 
well as several "individual" sports, such as golf and 
tennis. Almost all of the schedules are underway by 

Lasl year the Intramural Sports Committee 
successfully undertook three new activities. Twenty- 
four teams took part in the recreational touch football 
league, started last September. A co-ed tennis our- 
nameni was held on the St. Hilda's courts, and 
recreation skating at the arena attracted between 135 
and 210 skaters each Sunday evening for nine weeks. 

A Snow-Bowl Football game was played on 
January 21 between the Mulock Cup winners . (the 
winners in the interfaculty football league), Victoria 
College, and a team of Interfaculty All-Stars. (The 
game was a "Charity Bowl" with the receipts going to 
ihe Indian-Eskimo Association of Canada.) 

For the 1 972-73 season, a ski club and a 
recreational inner-tube waterpolo league is being con- 
sidered. The touch football was expanded from a total 
uf 24 teams last year to a present 30. Two games will 
have to be played per field because of the lack of 
facilities. (That is, the team with the ball moves from 
centre field to goal line.) 

Il is a tribute to the intramural program that it is 
siudenl-run for the most part. The students intramural 
program is as much an exercise in democracy as it is 
in running a league. They run the program and sit on 
the board which handles all the appeals and programs.

Small conference 
votes to set up 

arts student union 


Forty sludcnls representing 
student organizations in the Faculty 
f or Arls and Science almost un- 
animously decided to set up a facul- 
ty student union on Saturday. 

Only St. Michael's College 
students opposed the union which 
will represent all 13,000 students 
registered in Arts and Science. 

The Tounding conference at Hart 
House set up a committee of six to 
draft a constitution by October 2. 

Their proposal will then be 
submitted for ratification to college 
councils and course unions in the 
faculty. Three quarters of these 
bodies must approve the con- 
stitution before the union can be 

After a long, dreary debate 
marked by constant procedural 
wrangles, the delegates passes a 
number of resolutions to guide the 
constitutional drafting committeee 
on the purposes, duties, and struc- 
ture of the union. 

The conference formally limited 
the union to a service, information 
and co-ordination role for students 
I and student organizations in the 

Paul Moran of Erindale voiced 
the sentiment of a number of 
delegates when he said that "a 
policy and decision making role 
would destroy the union." 

A proposal, which would have 
committed the union to a policy- 
making role was defeated 8-6. 
However any decision is a matter of 
policy, and the union would decide 
in each case how far it would go on 
indivjdul issues. 

There was a consensus on the 
duties of the new union, as yet not 
formally named. 

It will have an $18,000 budget 
Irom the SAC education levy, to 
organize new course unions, support 
existing unions, research and co- 
ord inulc services for Arts and 
science student representatives on 
various university bodies. 

There was general agreement that 
the union should be completely 
autonomous from SAC. Only SMC 
representatives Pat Redican and Al 
Nigro dissented. 

Redican explained "students can't 
identify with the Faculty of Arts and 
Science. This body would be 
meaningless to the average student 
on campus." 

SAC rep Bob Anderson said the 
SMC idea that the union be es- 
tablished as a sub-committee of 
SAC's education commission would 
entail many difficulties. 

"It is better to have power on our 
own", he said. "We should only go

under SAC if there is no other way." 

Redican later challenged the 
legitimacy of the conference saying 
"the way delegates have been ac- 
credited is a joke." He charged a 
number of delegates did not repre- 
sent their consituency properly. 

A number of delegates were 
voting Tor departments in which no 
course union exists. 

Delegates agreed on a structure 
consisting of a large council of ap- 
proximately 50 people with 
representatives from college coun- 

cils, course unions and the faculty 
General Committee student caucus, 
and an executive. 

However, a proposal by David 
Freedman or New College, which 
hud been accepted in principle, 
caused disagreement on the number 
representatives suggested from each 

The final decision on the coun- 
cil's composition was left to the 
recommendations of the con- 
stitution drafting committee. 


Due to a serious mechanical 
breakdown at The Varsity's 
printers, much of the content of 
today's paper had to be dropped 
at the last minute, and 
proofreading of what was left 
abandoned. The Varsity 
apologizes to its readers for this 
and the paper's late delivery. 

Committee debates issue 

Final examinations for history may return 


Should University of Toronto 
history students be required to write 
final examinations? 

Should exams be required in 
lecture courses over a certain size? 

A special committee set up by the 
U of T history department will meet 
"sometime this week" to discuss 
these and other related questions in 
an attempt to arrjye at recommen- 
dations for an examination policy 
for the department before its next 
meeting on about three weeks. 

The committee was requested by 
faculty head J.B. Conacher and 
other department members at the 
last department meeting September 
II, in order to clarify the 
department's vague position on the 
matter. No guidelines have been set 
for the committee to follow. 

The committee will consist of two 
faculty members. Kenneth 
McNuught and Milton Israel; one 
undergraduate student, either Jim 
Lungo or Gus Richardson, ex- 
ecutives of the History Student's 
Union, and an unnamed teaching 

The faculty stands divided on 
what the policy should be. Ac- 
cording to Israel some members 
feels an examination is necessary, 
while others don't. 

Some feel exams should be 
required in large lecture courses that 
have no tutorials because there is 
little way of knowing individual 
students. A combination of in- 
creasingly larger classes and more 
emphasis on essays has led to the 
blossoming of the pirate essay 

Conacher says "at present, some 
students may be getting course 
credit for two essays they may not 
have written." 

Some faculty members, having 
tried courses without exams are 
switching back. 

"There are 70 members of the 
department", says Israel, "and 
about 68 different opinions." 

He added that previously the 
Faculty of Arts and Sciences had 
required final examinations for all 
first-first-year students, but all 
professors who wanted to waive that 
were allowed to do so. Some faculty 
members feel the policy should be 
the responsibility of departments, 
and not left up to individual 
professors, said Israel. 

In preparation for whatever the 
committee might recommend, 
Conacher has aked professors 
leaching large first-year courses to 
make no commitments about final 
exams, unless, of course, they have 
already staled there will already be 
one. He too feels that there is some 
doubt about the accuracy of a mark 
given on two or three essays in a 
course where the professor does not 
know the student. 

"There .may have to be a rtlrend 
(sic) tn the whole area," Conacher 
says. "We have made no decision as 
or yet: we'll rely on the committee 
for some ideas," 

He added that for large courses, 
there aren't many alternatives to 

Professor W.H. Nelson sees other 
considerations in the matter: "If the 
material covered is mainly factual, 
examinations seem sensible, but if 
the course relies on original work by 
the student, it can be judged on the 

In his course last year (History 
370), Nelson required students to 

write a take-home exam, with a time 
limit of a week. He hopes to repeat 
the practice this year. 

"There seems to be little purpose 
for an exam in a tutorial course," he 
says. "If the tutorial leader doesn't 
know the student after a year, 
there's something wrong." 

Longo says the History Student's 

Union member on the committee 
will bring the student voice to the 
meetings. Early this week the union 
will distribute questionnaires to 
history students concerning exams, 
so their position will be better 
represented on the committee. 

Longo expects many no-exam

Waffle to wage campaign for fed election 


York university professor 
James Laxer announced at a press 
conference Thursday that the Onta- 
rio Waffle Movement for an Inde- 
pendent Socialist Canada will wage 
a political campaign during the 
federal election. 

However, the Waffle will not 
field any candidates for the Octber 
30 contest. 

"We are not a political party." 
According to press release, no 
political party is dealing seriously 
with the vital issue of the in- 
dependence of Canada, 

The release states that "it is 
almost unbelievable, that the parties 
have said so litle about the effects of 
Nixon's economic policies on 
Canada, the criical trade talks still 

proceeding between Canada and the 
United States, and the quesion of 
Canadian resourse policy, par- 
ticularly in the far north." 

THE Waffle campaign, said 
Laxer, will be one way the in- 
dependence movement can put 
forward its views. 

The press release stated that the 
movement "opposes the Trudeau 

concept of federalism" and suggests 
|laht "only be recognizing the right 
;of self-determination for both of 
Canada's peoples can be built a new 
alliance between English and French 
ito deal with our common 

i Laxer continued, "we intend to 
run our own campaign. We are not 
(going to tell people how to vote". 

GSU miffed at Miglin invitation to ceremony 

Wafflers who were running 
under the NDP banner have 
withdrawn "because we were no 
longer in a situation to change the 
policies of the party we were part 
of," he said. 

"The point of our campaign is 
to bring attention to those issues 
being ignored by politicians."

The Graduate Students' Union 
has expressed concern over the ad- 
ministration's decision to invite 
SAC president Eric Miglin to speak 
as the sole representative of the 
entire student body at the installa- 
tion of president John Evans this 

In a letter o presidential 
assistant, N.S. Dickinson, GSU 
president Wendy LeBlanc said that 
Miglin "in no way represents or 
speaks for the close to 7,000 
grauduate students" of the 

She was also perturbed that she 
had not been conulted before the 

choice was made. 

She was informed of the choice 
of Migin, she says, by receiving a 
copy of a letter sent to the Associa- 
tion or Part-time Undergraduate 
Students, saying he had been picked. 

Larry Hoffman, GSU 
executive assistant, complained tat 
the university has begun Evans' term 
here "by disenfranchising graduate 
students." He admitted that SAC 
represents more students thn any 
other student body but thought 
LeBlanc should have also been given 
the chance to speak. 

Dickinson said he supposed the 
group who chose Miglin had not 
thought it necessary to consult 

LeBlanc because of the non- 
political, non-academic nature of te 

"Nobody should get uptight 
about it," he said. 

He stressed the simplicity of the 
installation ceremony and added 
that it would take six or seven hours 
to let every duly constituted body on 
campus speak, even though the

'Stuff peddled 
is not mescaline" 

In reading the section on drugs 
in your "Community Guide" 
(September 18). I noticed that 
several popular miscnceptions had 
been included. 

The information on mescaline 
and psilocybin was factual. 
However, it is important to note that 
despite the widely held belief that 
both thse substances, as well as 
peyote and THC. are readily 
available in Canada, there seems to 
be virtually no basis in reality for 
this assumption. 

Over the past three years, 
numerous samples of substances 
alleged to be mescaline, both orga- 
nic and inorganic, psilocybin. THC. 
and peyote have been analysed bv 
the Addiction Research Foundation 
in Toronto - and none of these 
drugs has ever been detected. The 
majority of such samples actually 
turned out to be one of three things: 
LSD. PCP or a combination of 
the two. 

PCP Iphencyclidene) is a drug 
for which the only current phar- 
maceutical use is as an anesthetic for 
animals. Adverse reactions for 
humans can include "speedy" sym- 
ptoms, such as increased heart rate 
and blood pressure, as well as 
nausea, vomitting. and visual 
hallucinations (the latter action 
partly explaining why PCP turns up 
as a counterfeit for the "exotic 
hallucinogens). It is. in short, a 
potentially harmful drug. 

The article also mentioned that 
MDA is a speed-like, addicting 
drug. It is, however, classified scien- 
tifically as a hallucinogen rather 
than an amphetamine, and there has 
been no evidence to date that would 
indicate the use of MDA causes 
physical dependance. 

I hope you will decide to re- 
inform the students in these areas I 
have outlined. Drug information is 
only useful when it is factual.

To aid executive members 

SAC hires more office assistants 


In a move designed to aid its 
executive members, SAC plans to 
hire office assistants to fill two 
existing positions and create one or 
possibly two positions of a similar 

SA C will fill the executive 
assistant's position, and will also 
hire an education assistant for a post 
created in 1967. As well, an assistant 
will work for both the services and 
communications commissions. 

Present executive assistant 
Paul Carson is re-applying for his 
job, along with approximately 30 
others. The education position was 

filled during the summer first by last 
year's education commissioner. Dan 
Lcckie, then by interim com- 
missioner Bob Anderson and most 
recently by present commissioner 
Marty Stollar. 

The positions were advertised 
in a $30 Globe and Mail adver- 
tisement, as well as in campus 
media, President Eric Miglin later 
said he regretted the move, as the ad 
brought forth many applicaions 
from people with little knowedge of 
U of T. 

Stollar said last week that if the 
Arts and Science Union does not 

come into being, SA C will need a 
second paid assistant to share the 
duties that would fall under the 
education commissoner's juridica- 
tion. A conference Saturday decided 
to form the union, but to get un- 
derway, it requires ratification by 
various student bodies and a SAC

Quebec law students meet today, 
may decide on general strike 

general strike of Quebec law 
students at the Quebec bar now 
seems imminent, following a 
meeting Saturday night at the 
University of Montreal. 

An ultimatum from the U of M 
students demanding the restructur- 
ing of the bar examination was ig- 
nored last week. 

Consequently, law students at 
the University of Montreal, the 
University of Sherbrooke, Laval 
University, the University of 
Ottawa and McGill University are 
considering strike action. 

William Friedman, president 
of the McGill law undergraduate 
society has called a meeting today at 
which he will ask for student support 
for the strike. 

If they agree, they wll join more 
students who have already begun 
picketing the Palais de Justice. 

Bar examinations have been 
scheduled during the time of demon- 
strations, yet the doors have already 
been barred by angry students. 

The lawyers' guild, however, 
has a police permit to demonstrate 
between 8:30 am and 12:30 p.m. 

The major objections of the 
striking students are aimed at the 
structure of the bar exams. Six tests 
are given both morning and after- 
noon on three consecutive days; 
each lasts three hours.

tested in Quebec earlier this year

could not by itself provide sufficient 
work to justify the hiring of a full- 
lime assistant.SA C also employs 
two general secretaries as well as an 
assistant to the accountant. 

At a SAC executivemeeting 
early this month, Miglin expressed 
the philosophy behind the prolifera- 
tion of paid assistants. ideally every 
commission should have a resource 
person to handle bureaucracy and 
research, but not policy formation, 
which must be the role of the elected 

In an interview this week, 
Miglin asserted that for its size and 
significance, SAC has a relatively 
small paid full-time office staff. 

executive assistant this year. 

The major responsibility of 
the one or two education assistants 
is information dissemination. The 
assistants will also organize course 
evauations and non-editorial work 
on Hoglown Press, which SAC 
acquired last March. 

The newly-created position of 
services and communications assis- 
tant is desgned primarily for work 
on a number of surveys planned 
by both commissions. 

Hiring committees to consider 
the applicants were being es- 
tablished last week. 'We hope to 
have filled the positions by the end 
of the month" Miglin said.

We are all on trial 

Drop charges against library four 

Although John Evans hat 
been U of T prealdent since 
July first, the veatlgea ol the 
turbulent reign of caretaker 
president Jack Sword etlll 
linger. Tomorrow, four people 
arrested during the police 
aaaault on laet March's first 
Slmcoe Hall occupation 
come to trial. 

The four, along with 
between 25 and 100 com- 
patriots, had occupied the 
university's main ad- 
ministrative building when 
the academic Senate re- 
fected student end communi- 
ty demands for unlimited 
access to the stacks of the 
John Roberts Library. 

The occupation followed 
months of futile debate, first 
In the Library Council and 
then the Senate, all falling on 
deaf ears. It was like a rerun 
of the previous summer's U of 
T Act legislature debate. The 
students had all the reasoned 
arguments; the conservative 
faculty the clout to prevent 
the students from winning 
their point. 

More than 7,000 students 
manifested their support for 
the open stacks campaign, 
signing petitions and 
coupons. A wide variety of 
community groups voiced 
their support for the student 
campaign In letters presented 
to the Initial Senate meeting 
which rejected student 

But when acting president 
Sword thought student 
numbers were sufficiently 
low, he ordered Metro end 
campus police to evict the 
occupiers, early on a droway 
Sunday morning. For the se- 
cond time In his one year 
tenure as Claude Bissau's 
temporary successor, Sword 
had given In to Impulsive 
reaction and broken with 
long-standing tradition by 
bringing Metro police onto 

The police esaault was 
quick and brutal. Despite 
alleged orders to U of T. chief 
constable J.F. Weetheed to 
Inform each student that he 
had the right to leave the 
building voluntarily, no war- 
ning was given to the Slm- 
coe Hall occupiers. 

Rejecting negotiation, the 
phalanx of campus and Metro 
police crashed up against the 
omate, wooden doore of the 
Senate Chambers, eventually 
beating a panel through to 
obtain entry. Despite student 
cries to avoid fighting 
between cops and students, 
Metro cops began attacking 
the students, punching and 
kicking wildly In all 

Students mass outside Slmcoe Hall before reoccupylng Senate Chambers to protest then acting president Jack Sword's action In 

having police evict occupiers. 

In the bitter irony that 
charecterlzea riot police 
offensives, people resisting 
police attacks were beaten all 
the harder. And, persons who 
came to their rescue were 
charged with assaulting 

Nineteen people were 
arrested for trespassing 
however the university later 
dropped the chrgee following 
the re-occupetlon of Slmcoe 
Hall by more than 600 
atudenta protesting 
Sword's action. 

Charges against four of the 
occupiers for aaaault and ob- 
struction were, however, not 
dropped by the police despite 
e public statement by the 
university's top ad- 
ministrators that "the In- 
terests of both the university 
community and the public 
would be beet served If all 
charges were dropped. These 
are the charges which come 
up Tuesday. 

The four open stacks 
supporters shouldn't be on 
trial. Instead, the cope who 
assaulted the occupying 
atudenta should be standing 
In the docket. It's time 
overzealoua head-buatera 
were made to own up to their 

The university, too, ahould 
Join "Metro's finest" In the 
docket. It ahould never have

settle an Internal matter. 

The occupation, 
expressing the Just dis- 
content of thousands of 
students, waa a legitimate 
vehicle of dleaent and was not 
Interfering with the universi- 
ty's operations. In fact, the 
occupiers restricted them- 
selves primarily to the Senate 
Chamber area so that the 
university would be able to 
carry on Its normal functions 
when Its business offices 
reopened Monday morning. 

There are serious doubts 

that the university has pur- 
sued the dropping of these 
chargea aa vigorously ae It 
could have. Vice-presidents 
Sword and Donald Foreter 
(now the undisputed number 
two men In the ad- 
ministration) end vlce- 
provost Robin Rosa have 
been subpoenaed to testify at 
the trials. They ahould seize 
the opportunity to reassert 
firmly the university's deelre 
that proceedings be dropped. 

All three signed a March 13 
statement admitting that 
"there was some mis- 
understanding and dif- 
ficulties of communication 
because of the circumstances 
under which the police had 
(sic) to act". There need be 
no room for "misunder- 
standing" now. The unlveraity 
was wrong In calling police. 
The police were overly 
enthouslastlc In carrying out 
their orders. And, the charges

a ■ . _ interview followino J* T nr - .„ at. . 


Alderman Tony O'Donohue 
ended months of speculation Satur- 
day by admitting he intends to run 
for mayor of Toronto. He said an 
official announcement of his can- 
didacy can be expected "soon". 
This disclosure came in an 

interview following de Toronto 
lapmg or "Crossfire", a television 
show similar to Under Attack. 

In the introduction to the CHCH- 
TV show, O'Donohue allowed 
himself to be referred to as "a 
candidate for mayor" in the 
December 4 municipal election 

After the show, which is intended fo. 
broadcast later this week or next 
week, he said he was unaware while 
Hie show was being taped that 
reporters were present. 
However, he confirmed his in- 
tentions to an reporter after the 

Provinces want more paperwork 
in Canada student loan plan 

OTTAWA(CUP) - The provinces have established 
tough new regulations for the Canada Student Loan 
plan which could further restrict access to post- 
secondary education. 

The regulations include a requirement for 
photostated copies of T-l income tax forms of both 
students and their parents to be included in loan 
applications. The forms are supposed to be private 
information for the Department of National revenue 
but the law protects a citizen from, misuse of that 
information only by that department and no other If 
copies of the T-l form are not provided, the loan will 
not be granted. 

Some western Canadian student unions are 
reportedly consideering legal action on the clause as a 
breach of privacy. But the regulations were made by the 
provinces, not by the federal government. 

Some of the changes benefit students. The maximun 
annual loan was increased to $1400 from $1000 while 
$7500° tal b ° rr0wing limit was raised *««n $5000 to 

But the most controversial new regulation requires 
students to save a certain amount of money from 
summer work. The exact amount is determined by a 
chart based on a student summer employment survey 
conducted in 1971 by the Department of Manpower 
and Immigration. 

The provinces all agreed to this change and to the use 
of the chart. 

However, British Columbia governement officials 
appear to be backin away after student protests over the 
rule began. 

Seymour Archibold, provincial student affais 
department superintendent in Victoria, claimed that his 
department eased the regulations despite opposition 
from. Ottawa. He said that expected earnings had been 
cut by $100 across the board. 

Federal officials told CUP that British Columbia is 
now using the chart prepared for Alberta B.C had 
earlier agreed to use its own chart which called for 
students to save an average of $875 over the summer. 

The expected savings vary according to sex and the 
number of years of study completed. All student loan 
applications will be processed on the assumption that 
everyone worked during the summer. Students wishing 
to appeal the decision must do so through the 
appropriate provincial authority. 

Ontario students may have the hardest time getting 
appeals processed because of their large number of 
Canada s university sutdents attend Institutions in 

The Canada Student Loans Act was passed by the 
federal government in 1964 to allow more young people 
to attend post-secondary institutions. The act outlined 
certain mmimun regulations the federal government 
felt were necessary. 

Because the act is administered by the provinces, the 
ten provincial educational representatives meet and 
decide under which regulations they will administer the 
act. Unanimous agreement must be reached before 
changes can be made. A federal Department of Finance 
representative chairs the meetings. 

The new regulations were effective July I, the 
beginning of the plan's fiscal year. 

The provinces will meet again in November to 
discuss the B.C. decision not to use the previously 
agreed upon tables. 

Student opposition to the new regulations may be 
able to force the governments to retreat. The B.C. 
example indicates that it can be done 

His campaign will emphasize the 
importance of family and com- 
munity in modern society 
O Donohue said, although 
reformers and some of the " Old 
Guard" feel the real issues are urban 
growth and development. 

The ward 4 alderman, who is also 
on the city executive, repreatedly 
asserted that the breakdown of the 
nuclear family the biggest probelm 
lacing society today. 

One solution to "this problem, he 
claimed, was a deeper commitment 
by parents to their children. He 
rejected the notion that the com- 
munal family is an alternative. 

O'Donohue also said that a 
lightening of discipline in the 
schools was necessary, although he 
later admitted he knew "very little 
about school systems. I can only go 
by my own experience." 

O'Donohue was educated in 
Ireland, in what he decsribed as a 
strict educational system. 

Much of the programme centred 
on Rochdale. 

O'Donohue, a long-time foe of the 
high-rise co-op building, claimed it 
"sets a bad climate for Toronto's 
young." Although "99.99 per cent of 
the kids are good kids", Rochdale 
gives youth a bad name, he stated. 

O'Donohue referred to Rochdale 
as the "up of the iceberg" of the 
breakdown of the social order that 
he is making the main theme of his 
mayralty campaign. 

O'Donohue elaborated little on 
ihc other possible campaign issues 
He said he didn't think the Spadina 
Expressway would be an issue 
because "Davis has said no". 
O'Donohue was in favour of the 
expressway when the issue was 
before city Council in 1970 
Questioned his chances of winning 
the election, he merely state that he 
"couldn't by the election" 

He added that Alderman David 
Rotenberg "is certainly not short of 
money. 1 am not in his position, I'll 
have to win it another way" 
Rotenberg, along with Alderman 
David Crombie. is a declared 
mayoralty candidate. 

Asked about how the "reformers" 
will do in the December municipal 
election, O'Donohue said "I don't 
consider someone who is against 
development a reformer. Every new 
alderman considers himself a 
reformer and as far as that goes I 
guess there will be a couple on 
council next year." 

O'Donohue also promised to 
reveal his campaign expenditures 
hdure the election is over.

University of Toronto barred women from 
me S ra sch001 in 19th century: organizer 

RwailSC nhf line n n>A_ C-i 


The University of Toronto 
blatantly discriminated against 
female students in the 19th century, 
asserted Jackie Larkin at a forum 
on the history of women, sponsored 
by the Department of Inter- 
disciplinary Studeis. 

Larkin, a mbmer of the NDP 
women's caucus cited the case of 
Emily Howard, a woman who 
attempted to enrol in the U of T's 
medical school in I860.

Because she was a woman, Stowe 
was refused entry to the University 
of Toronto's medical school. She 
was told by one offical: "The doors 
of the university are not open to 
women, and, 1 trust, never will be." 

Larkin spoke to a large crowd in 
the Faculty of Eduction auditorium. 

Stowe, Larkin said, got her 
degreee in New York, but was 
almost prevented from practising 
medicine in Ontario because her 
degree was not Canadian. In fact, 
the first medical degree granted to a 
Canadian woman in Canada went to 
her daughter. 

But the U of T had tried hard to 
fight this, Larkin stated. It had 
helpd to establish a 'separate but 
equal' medical school for women in 
Toronto, which evolved into today's 
Women's College Hospital. 

In the 19th century, women who 
attended secondary school were con- 
sidered worthy of only half the 
government grant that applied to a 
men. Until around 1920, fewer 
women went to high school than 
men and for thse women, Larkin 
asserted ther was special treatment: 
courses in "needlework and 


QLarkin discussed why most wome 
did not go to school as much as men 
in the nineteenth century. 

Even if they weren't busy making 
clothes, soap, candles, bread, and 
preserves from their gardens, their 
place was considered to be in the 
home. There were children to take 
care of, and probably usually many 
of them, because sons were needed 
to do the farming. Childbirth was 
dangerous, given the scarcity of 

The importance of women was 
recognized in an 1870 legal decision, 
when a husband was awarded $500 
for the loss of his wife's labour after 
she fell on ice and broke her leg. She 
received nothing. 

About this time, Larkin told the 
audience, a woman lost her 
nationality, property and wages if 
she married She had no legal power 
over the apprenticeship or adoption 
of her children. If she committed 
adultery, the law could forbid her 
access to her children. The same 
thing did not apply to a husband 
who "sinned". It was not until this 

century that a wife could sue for 
desertion or child support. 

When women began to get paid 
jobs in numbers, their jobs, not 
surprisingly, were extensions of the 
home duties wheh they performed so 
well: they became servants, 
housekeepers, and textile workers. 
As the latter, Larkin asserted, they 
often worked 16-18 hours a day, and 
sometimes were excluded 
fromunions on grounds which ar 
reminiscent f the present: women are 
not steady workrs; they leave to get 

Their wages remained below 
those of men. In 1907 female 
workrs' wages averaged only two- 
third of male workers'. 

Since then, the percentage of the 
labour force which was female rose 
from about 15 per cent to 15 per 
cent. During the Second World 
War, women became involved in 
work not usualy deemed suitable for 
them. Mothers were granted flexible 
hours or daycare centres, because 
their work was needed. These 
necessities largely disappeared after 
[he war.

SAC General Meeting 

7:00 p.m. 


Applications for the 
four SAC seats on the Var- 
sity Board must be 
received by 4:00 Wed- 
nesday. Send Applications 
(or requests for further in- 
formation) to Debra Lewis, 
Communications Com- 
missioner, SAC office. 



At the last general meeting of SAC, the coun- 
cil decided upon a number of areas which require 
our immediate and intensive attention. Committees 
are being organized to investigate the following 

1. STUDENT SERVICES: Those working in this 
area will be involved in evaluating the quality of 
present SAC and University student services and 
making recommendations to SAC concerning 
existing and possible additional areas of student 
services. If interested in this area, contact Bill 
Steadman, Services Commissioner. 

EDUCATION: The purpose of this working group is 
to ensure a continuity of student expertise and 
competence in the field of post-secondary finan- 
cing and to increase the general awareness 
among the student body as a whole with regard to 
issues in this field. 

Contact: Eric Miglin President. 

3. DISCIPLINE: With discipline soon to be an 
issue in the Governing Council, it is essential that 
SAC issue a position paper on this topic It will 
report to council by October 1. Contact: John 
Creelman, University Commissioner. 

4. THE LIBRARY: SAC feels that the question 
of the Robarts Library is still very much an issue 
and one in which we must take an initiative. The 
Library Committee will be surveying the arguments 
concerning the library and presenting their 
evaluation of these to council by October 30 Fur- 
ther actions may be taken upon adoption of a SAC 
policy Contact: Michael Steinberg 

5 UNIVERSITY PLANNING: Since the idea of 
a single campus centre has been rejected by many 
o those concerned, SAC has turned its attention to 
Planning of the University as a whole. SAC com- 
mits .self to analysing students' needs and desires 
w th respe el .to physical planning, and commits it- 
se f to seeking the broadest possible student in- 
volvement in long range university planning. Con- 
tact: John Helliwell, Vice President 

mm£ DA T CARE: ln tne 'ight of recent develop- 
,n t thl i area - discussion of this topic was 
tabled until the next general meeting.

OCT. 11, 12 

As a member of the On 
tario Federation of Students, 
SAC at U of T has already ex 
pressed support of two OFS 
demands on fees: that the fee 
increases be deterred until 
those affected are consulted 
and until the Wright Com 
mission Report is discussed, 
and that the OSAP changes 
be reversed, so the loan 
ceiling would return to $600. 

Now OFS is asking all 
students in Ontario for sup- 
port for these demands, and 
for an opinion on the tactics 
proposed for realizing the 
demands. A province-wide 
referendum is being held Oc- 
tober 11 and 12 asking three 

1- Do you support the 
demands made by the Ontario 
Federation of Students to the 
Government of Ontario? 

2. Will you support 
withholding your tuition fees in 
January if OFS negotions with 
the Government are un- 

3. Would you support 
withholding all of your 1973- 
9174 tuition fees If the Govern- 
ment of Ontario announces fur- 
ther tuition fee increases or fur- 
ther detrimental changes in 

The way your education 
.s paid for will be one of the 
great educational debates of 
the seventies. It is an issue 
that affects everyone in On- 
tario. For this reason, student 
actions now are extremely 
important. They must be 
carefully thought out; they 
must be reasonable and 
responsible; and above all, 
they must have the support of 
the great majority of students. 

This referendum is your 
opportunity to tell student 
organizations what you think 
of their proposals. The issues 
are complex, and SAC wili 
seek to present them as fairly 
and as clearly as possible. 
Each of the questions must 
be understood and voted on 
by an informed student body. 

SAC will make clear all of 
the consequences of a yes orno 
vote to each question, but you 
must make up your own mind.

Blues blank Waterloo 4-0 in season opener 


Varsity Blues combined an outstanding 
defensive effort with two first half touchdowns 
to defeat Carleton Ravens 14-6 before 1500 
noisy fans Saturday in Ottawa. 

The victory evens Blues 1 season record at 1- 
I and puis them into a second-place tie with 
Ottawa Gee Gees who lost 16-13 to Queens in 

Although Carleton mounted a furious drive 
in the final two minutes, the game was 
actually decided during a fifteen minute span 
in (he first half and the opening portion of the 
third quartes. 

In the first half. Blues were leading 7-0, 
thanks to Cor Doret's two-yard plunge, when 
penalties and two Carleton end sweeps carried 
the Ravens to the Varsity one yard line. 
Captain Hartley Stern stopped Raven 
fullback Joe Colvey on second down, an with 
third and goal Blues entire defensive front 
four (Jim Nicoletti, Jim Orfanakos, Jon 
Dellandrea, and Jim Blainey) plus Stern and 
Rob Bloxham piled up Colvey again and 
Blues took over the ball. One series later 
the Ravens were back inside Blues' 15 but 
linebacker Alex Markobrada threw Mon- 
lagano for a sis-yard loss. Carleton kicker 
Derek Roberts was then wide and short on a 
24-yard field goal attempt. 

Blues couldn't move the ball and were hit ■ 
for a "no yards" penalty on de ensuing punt, . 
then a roughing penalty on Carleton's first 
play. The Ravens were back in a familiar spor 
— the Varsity 15 — but again had to settle for 
a 24-yard field goal attempt. Stern broke 
through to cleanly block it and carried the bal 
out or danger to the Varsity 40. 

On the next play, Dunkley lofted a pass to 
flanker Aarne Kartna who raced the 
remaining yards down the sideline pasto two 
surprised Carleton halfbacks. Dunkley kicked 
his second convert of the day an Blues went 
into the dressing room leading 14-0 

Ravens opened the third quarter with three 
quick first downs but successive blitzer by 
Nicoletti and Bloxham set them back 22 yards 
an forced a punt. 

On the next series montagagano hit Raven 
halfback Bill Mason on a screen to the short 
side an Mason rambled to the Varsity seven- 
yard line Stern again was in the right place 
intercepting a seconddown pass on the goal- 
line to keep Carleton off de scoreboard.

for 30 yards on two crucial completions. 

Ravens kept Blues' offensive unit pinned 
inside the Varsity 15 for [he next few minutes 
but midway through the quarter rookie Brent 
Elsey recovered a fumbled punt on the Tronto 
35 and Blues were out of danger. 

A Bob Billinghurst interception pi us inside 
running by Doret and Libert Castillo main- 
tained Blues favourable field position until 
one of the seemingly endless "-no yards " 
penalties put Carleton on de Varsity 47 with 
about eight minutes remaining in the fourth 

Montagano moved the ball well and hit 
flanker Scott Alexander on a key third down 

gamble before passing 19 yards to Alexander 
for the touchdown. The convert sailed directly 
over the right goal-post and Blues led 14-6 but 
Ravens had five minutes to get another 
touchdown and try the optional two-point 
convert provided in college rules. 

Ravens picked up the ball once more on a 
fumble and wtth rookie quarterback Steve 
Kerr at the controls (Dunkley left the field in 
the fourth quarter with a painful rib injury). 
Blues' offensive squad kept the ball on the 
ground. Carleton finally regained possession 
on their own 16 with 1:34 to play and 
Montagano again combined with Alexander 

After another completion, Montagano ran 
twice himself for thirty yards, but ignored two 
opportunities to run out of bounds and time 
ran out with Carleton on de Varsity 25; 

Overall, Ravens scrimmaged inside the 
Varsity 25 on no less then seven separate 
occasions and came away with only six points. 
Blues were in the similar position exactly once 
in the entire game and made it count with 
Doret's touchdown capping a 65-yard march 
late in the first quarter. 

Blues defeat Carleton 14-6 


The soccer Blues began their 
defence of the OUAA Western Divi- 
sion championship with a 4-0 win 
over the University of Waterloo 
Warriors Saturday. 

Gong into the game at Varsity 
Stadium, the Waterloo squad had 
already completed one league game, 
beating McMaster 2-0. Any dreams 
the Warriors had of recording a 

second shut-out were quickly 

In the first minute Blues 1 Mario 
Darosa just failed to convert a good 
scoring opportunity. DaRosa made 
good shortly after when, with the 
game only two minutes old, he 
intercepted a Waterloo pass, and 
squared the ball to Vito Polera, who 
prompptly hit a fast rising shot 
beyond the goalkeeper's ustretched 

The hard, uneven pitch made 
accurate interpassing difficult, but 
the Blues continued to press. At the 
twenty minute mark Blue's Vicen 
lerullo played a penetrating ball to 
DaRosa, who moved powerfully 
forward before striking a ground 
shot into the corner or de Warrior 
net to give the Blues a commanding 
2-0 lead. 

Despite the opportunity of 
handing the Warriors a real drub- 

Vlto Polera scores soccer Blues third gola against Waterloo toward the end of the first half 

bing, the Blues lost their composure, 
and the Waterloo squad began to_ 
carry the play. 

Even so, with Bob Cazzola paying 
a sturdy defensive game on the left 
flank and Tim Burns making timely 
interceptions in his role of 
"sweeper", very little real danger to 
Blues' goaltender Joe Dattolico 
emerged from the visitors' pressure. 
On two occasioss the goalkeeper 
made key saves, handling an 
awkward bouncing shot, and then 
clutching a high cross from among a 
thicket of players. 

Suddenly the flow of the game 
changed and the Blues began to 
string together a series of passing 
plays, several originating from 
Bruno Bruni in left midfield. Close 
to the half time break the Blues' 
attacking play pressured the 
Waterloo player-coach, Hans 
Weisner, to concede a corner kick. 
The kick was accurately crossed to 
Vito Polera, who immediately 
relayed the ball to the back of 
Waterloo's net. 

Holding a 3-0 lead the Blues 
began the second 45 minutes with 
confidence, but were soon into 
another period of indecisive play. 
Joe Dattolico worked hard to 
preserve his shut out , making one 
save at point blank range, and ob- 
taining assistance from a friendly 
crossbar on a Warrior lob. 

However, neither the goalkeeper 
nor the woodwork were requiered to 
repel the greatesj Waterloo threat, a 
penalty shoy conceded by Eugene 
Konarski who tripped a goal-bound 
attacker. The unfortunate Warrior 
penally laker hit his shot harmlessly 
wide of the net. 

The lucky escape restored the 
Blues' momentum, and within- 
minules team captain Vito Polera 
completed an interpassing move 
with DaRosa to enable him to notch 
his "hat trick" and the team's fourth 
goal. During the remaining seven 
minutes the Blues went on to 
successfully preserve Dattolico's 

Coach Bob Nico! was satisfied 
with the results, considering it was

May solve day care impasse 
by house rental to Co-op 

New proposals which may wholly or partly free the 
two major campus day care centres from the yoke of 
the Governing Council's day care policy have been 

The major proposal, as far as the Campus Co-Op 
group occupying the Devonshire clubhouse is con- 
cerned, is the possibility that the university may rent a 
house to them on a similar basis to that of the first 
centre on Sussex Street. The centre, for children under 
iwo, is in u university-owned house which is rented at a 
subsidized rale to the co-op. 

This possibility was first raised even before the final 
decision of the Governing Council on day care policy 
was made last Thursday. 

In reply to a letter from the Campus Co-op group, 
also printed in The Varsity September 13, U of T 
president John Evans arranged a meeting last Tuesday. 

According to Bob Davis, a spokesman for the 
occupying parents, the co-op's suggestion that the 
university could rent a house to them was greeted 
favourably by Evans. The president pointed out, says 
Davis, that the Governing Council policy could not 
likely be changed at such a late date. 

However, a solution to the impasse might be found 
if it did not conflict with the council's policy. The rental 
or a house would be purely a real estate matter and not 
lull under day care policy. 

However, there were still several problems. 
First, the university must be able to find a suitable 
house that will shortly become vacant. 

Such u house would probably be one of the 
universily buildings currently rented out for residential 
purposes. Under an agreement made with the local 
ratepayers group a couple of years ago. the university 
must discuss plans to convert a building from 
residential to university use with the ratepayers. 

Fvans apparently repeated an offer the 
administration had earlier made to loan the co-op 
money lo renovate and equip Ihe house, if the loan 
could be made lo a legally liable body.. 

Administration Campus Co-ordinator Lois Reimer, 
who has heen working closely on the university's day 
care policy, confirmed last night that a house might be 
made available if all obstacles can be overcome. 

However, the university's emphasis now seems to be 
i>n a proposal to allow both Campus Co-op and the St. 
A.idrew's Nursery to buy portable building units to be 
installed <>n the Devonshire property. 

Under this proposal, made by vice-provost Robin 
Ross last Saturday, both groups would have to finance 
the portables. While the groups would have more 
autonomy in these than in the centre to be established 
by the university in the Devonshire building, they 
would still be subject to the advisory board set up run 
the university centre, says Davis. 

Although Reimer said she personally feels that 
portables are not the answer, St. Andrew's is very 
interested in the idea, the vice president of the parent 
executive last night said. 

Gertrude Currie continued "It looks good, but we'd 
like lo know what we're getting before we accept 
it." She said the proposal was "very vague", and did 
nut have any estimate of the costs or a suggestion of a 
guarantee of occupancy of the land. - 

Si. Andrew's has setup a committee to investigate 
the details, particularly costs, she said. St. Andrew's 
probably has space for its centre at least until next 
May, and thus is not in a great hurry. 

On the other hand. Campus Co-op Number 2 
which is still maintaining a 24 hour occupation of 
Devonshire after five months, is wary of the portable 

The primary objections the co-op has is the cost and 
the lack of complete independence which the proposal 
entails. In addition, they object to what Ross 
descrihed as the gradual "phasing out" of community 
non-universily children. 

The co-op told the administration that under certain 
conditions the house offer would be acceptable, says 

The house must be in reasonable shape, so that 
renovations are not prohibitively expensive. As well, the 
need an interest-free loan and low rent with payments 
arranged in such a way that the co-op's present low 
charges to parents do not have to be raised. 

Davis says the co-op's position is that any proposal 
is unacceptable "if it leaves our case in the hands of the 
advisory committee". In addition, they are concerned 
that the matter be settled soon. 

Campus Co-Op's response has been outlined in a 
letter senl to the administration. 

An administration reply is expected soon. 
Meanwhfle. the co-op plans a demonstration at 
tomorrow's mstallation of U of T presideent John 
Fvans protesting the university's inadequate policy on 
social responsibility. 


U of T vice-president Jack Sword yesterday testified that he 
authorized the use of Metro and campus police to clear the March 13 
Woe Hall Senate Chamber occupation with the understanding 
that the occupiers would not be considered trespassers 

They were simply to be evicted from the building after sufficient 
warning had given been, he said. 

i nstead, 1 9 people were charged with trespassing,although these 
charges were later dropped at the request of the university 

Four persons remain charged with more serious offences Bill 
Getty Mark Goldblatt, and Randy Reynolds are all charged with 
assaulting police, while Goldblatt also faces an obstruction charge 
Tom McLaughlin has been charged with obstructing police 

Their trials are being held this week and next. Sword was 
leslilying at Goldblatt's trial yesterday afternoon 

Reynolds and Goldblatt are represented by prominent local 
lawyer Austin Cooper. Cooper acted as prosecutor in the Karleton 
Armstrong extradition case. Getty and McLaughlin, facing trail 
October 4, chose separate trials and will act as their own advocates 
planning to emphasize the political nature of their trails 

Sword recounted that he had ordered campus safety and 
security officer J. F. Westhead to call in police at 10:20 the morning 
of the raid. a 

The next witness, U of T's chief security officer Gordon Huff 
testified that he had been instructed by Westhead to summon police 
at nine am that morning. He said he understood the instructions to 
mean that "people who did not leave were to be assumed 
tresspassers." contradicting Sword's interpretation of the orders. 

Huff said that two groups of police were assembled before the 
raid. One third of their number were to go inside and ask the 
occupants to leave while the rest were to enter by the main doors and 
"escort 1 them out, ensuring that they leave. 

He said he led the second group up the stairs and it took them 
rrom two to three minutes to get to the hall directly in front of the 
Senate Chambers. Although he reported that the first group was to 
give the warning, he said he still felt it necessary to shout a warning 
in the hall because of the noise. 

Within seconds, he said, his group was at the Senate doors 
which had been barricaded by students and supporters. Questioned, 
he admitted that under the circumstances, it may have been hard to 
hear warnings. 

Huff said the upper panel of the Senate door was knocked in by 
police when they were trying to force the doors open. The space left 
gave police access to the inside of the chambers where a number of 
struggles occurred. 

When asked whether the police had been peaceful or aggressive 
in gaining entrance to the occupied quarters, Huff replied that "the 
police had a duty to perform" and that he hadn't seen any excessive 
use of force because "people were resisting police". Yet, he could not 
remember specific instances and had no recollection of who was 
involved even when shown explicit photographs. 

The defence used pictures taken by Varsity photographer Frank 
Rooney which showed police manhandling students, pulling their 
hair, and throwing them bodily out of the building. 

The prosecution on the other hand, used photographs 
reminiscent of the physical situation at the hall taken by Police 
Detective Brown, a photographer with the force at 52 Division. 
However, Cooper made Brown admit that not all of the pictures he 
had taken were being offered as evidence. 

The photos he exhibited pictured the disarray and disorder of 
the Senate Chambers and surrounding halls devoid of people, 
following the raid. The police officer repeatedly pointed to the food 
left about, the papers strewn over the floor, and the blankets and 
sleeping bags which had accomodated the overnight stay of the 
students and other supporters of unrestricted access to the stacks of 
the Robarts Library. 

The broken upper door panel was the subject of at least three 
pictures, though it was the only property damage which occurred 
during the occupations and was not done by students. 

Other police photos showed some of the slogans posted by 
students in the windows of the chambers, saying "Open the Stacks" 
and "Come Join Us". 

There were no police photos of people being taken out of the 
building during the round-up, though they were later introduced as a 
result of pressure from the defence. These photographs tended to 
confirm other evidence of police violence, but some did not picture 
(he action, only the faces of students. 

Called to the stand, Sword suggested that at the roots of the 
matter were "differences of opinion about how the Robarts Library 
should be administered" and "irreconcilible differences about 

He agreed with defence counsel that the occupation had been a 
reaction to a decision taken by the Seante which had endorsed 
differentiated access. He said that negotiations with students during 
the occupation did not deal with occupation of the chambers, but had 
forced discussion of the access issue. 

The judge intervened at this point stating that the main legal 
question before the court was "did the occupants, in the law, have 
the right to resist the eviction?"

Only four Vic students sign up 

Civic enumerations slow at U of T residences 


Only four people out of more than 
500 students and staff living at 
Victoria College have been 
enumerated for the December 4 
municipal election, according to the 
enumeration office. 

Jack Frye, an assessor working 
for the provincial assessment office, 
which is responsible for the 
enumeration, said yesterday that 
his office had four signed forms 
from Victoria, He would not say 
whether these forms were from 
students or not. 

Frye contended that the 
enumerators had used the names of 
people listed in the assessment 
hooks as occupying the college. 
Assessment roles normally indicate 
who the owner and chief tenants of 
any property are. 

Enumeration ended almost two 
weeks ago. 

"There are a lot of people we 
didn't get: we know that," he said. 
"The best thing to do now," he said, 
"is to wait until the lists come out." 

Those who want to vote must then 
register with the deputy returning 
officer or the city clerk. 

This requires sending a letter to 
the returning officer (222I Yonge 
Street) listing date of birth, religion, 
residential status, citizenship, and 
sex. or a visit in person to the clerk 
at City Hall. Many people have 
eompljined that this is a very in 
convenient procedure. 

The voters lists will appear at the 
end of October. 

Larry Whalen, a senior don at 
Vie. said thai the dons of the male 
residences had themselves collectec % 
the signatures of the male students 
for the enumeration office. Having 
done so. the dons thought they had 
done everything required to get 
residents on the voting list. 

Margaret Penman, Dean of 
Women at Victoria said that no 
enumerators had come to the 
womens' residences. Several dons 
and students contacted agreed they 

had not seen any municipal 

Penman added "I trust it is a 
mistake and not discrimination 
against any of the students." She 
noted the confusion in many 
students' minds about the municipal 
and federal elections, and their 
rights in each. 

There are 68 students living at 
Annesley, 200 at Margaret Addison, 
the two women's residences. There 
are some 250 male student residents. 

Reports that New, University and 
Trinity college residences had been 
overlooked in the enumeration 
could not be confirmed. 

However, the porteress at St. 
Hilda's College thought the 

residence had been enumerated for 
the federal, but not for the 
municipal election. A New College 
men's residence porter said that the 
residence had not been visited by the 
municipal enumerators. 

No deans of residence could be 
reached. Porters at other residences 
were not able to say whether or not 

enumerators had come. 

There are no longer any property 
or minimum period of tenancy 
qualifications for anyone to meet. 

Any Canadian student over 18 who 
wants to vote in the ward in which he 
is living has simply to state that his 
present address is his permanent 

Sex enters classroom

Ryerson students assail appointment of Sword 

A student coalition will demonstrate against Swnrri tonight. 

TORONTO (CUP) — A coalition of Ryerson 
students has organized a strong protest over the 
appointment of John Sword to their Board of 


They started the action Monday by asking for the 
removal of Sword. Since the, over 1,200 students have 
signed a petition calling for the immediate removal of 
the former acting president of the University of 

There has also been widespread support from the 
faculty of the of the school who feel Sword could 
damage Ryerson. Other campus groups such as 
Woman's Liberation and the Students for a 
Democratic Society have indicated they will be sup- 
porting the action to the end. 

The coalition is calling for a demonstration tonight 
when Sword officially takes his position on the Board. 

The demonstrators will confront the Board of 
Governors at the meeting to present their grievances and 
the petition. 

The students don't want Sword because they feel he is 
unacceptable for several reasons, which stem mainly 
from his action as U of T president. 

During his ter.rt, he called police on campus 
twice. Once during July 1971 to evict the residents of 
Wueheea, a summer transient hostel program, and again 
last March during the John P. Robarts Library dispute. 

The students are also questioning the fact the 
University of Toronto has an appointee on the R,yerson 
Board. The appointment is a provision of Bill 81 of the 
Ryerson Charter. Under the same bill the Association 
of Professional Engineers of Ontario also has a 
standing member. 

The coalition feels the Act is outdated and Ryerson is 
sufficiently large to govern itself without outside in- 
terests. They would like to see the bill revised to include 

four students, four faculty and four outside members 
plus the president. At the present time there are only 
two students and faculty, eight outside members 
(including a U of T member and the engineer) and the 

If the students don't receive any satisfaction at the 
Wednesday night Board meeting they will 
demostrate on Friday when Minister of Colleges and 
Universities George Kerr visits the institute. 

Studeni union president Dave Guptill said, " John 
Sword is wrong for the school. I don't feel he can serve 
the best interests of Ryerson given the political climate 
that has been generated around the man." 

Tony Cote, editor of the Eyeopener and one of the 
organizers of the coalition, says of the Wednesday night 
meeting, " We won't settle for anything less than the 
removal of Sword from the Board and a change in Bill 
XI to make sure this type of situation doesn't occur 

When confronted with this statement, Ryerson president 
Mordell said he would do everything possible to change 
things. He admitted that he hadn't thought of student 
reaction to the appointment. 

Hverlhing possible meant that Sword would not take 
his seat on the Board. Mordell said he would go to Kerr 
ir Sword did not resign on his own initiative. It has 
become apparent that Mordell didnt follow this couse 
of action and probably never intended to. 

In several meetings held yesterday, Mordell and his 
associates have stated they did not want to see any 
trouble on the campus, and stated they could handle the 
Ryerson students but they feared groups from off 

Several groups are expected from the University of 
Toronto to show up and support the action..

Compulsory finals offset recent reforms 

Varsity won 9 t censor letters 

Writing In today's Varsity, Blues football team captain 
Hartley Stern indicts the paper for not verlfyng facts In a letter 
criticizing the team published Friday. 

By referring to the letter as an article, Stern apparently 
missed the point of the Write on logo which appears on all 
Varsity letter pages. The symbol indicates that the views and 
opinions expressed in reader contributions are solely those of 
the writer, ana tnat tne paper does not necessarily endorse the 
published letters. 

No newspaper does or could endeavour to check reader 
contributions for accuracy. The most we can do Is ensure that 
traditional libel and slander conventions are respected. 

A letters page is designed to allow a paper's readers to 
express themselves. It is a reader's service. And, as such, it 
would be presumptious of the paper's editor to begin 
censoring contributions. 

Indeed, the paper's staff does not enjoy the luxury of having 
the necessary time to doublecheck the veracity of all claims 
made In readers' letters. It's enough of a hassle doing all the 
other odds and ends required to publish a paper. 

The only criteria, short of legal considerations, used in 
determining whether to publish letters are space available, 
.immediacy of letter topic, length of letter (The Varsity prefers to 

avoid editing letters for space), and whether the letter is 
submitted in usable form (typewritten preferably, and signed). 

As for "false accusations", it's a tautology that two people 
seldom see anything exactly the same way. 

And, when Stern starts talking about "inaccurate thinking", It 
reminds us of the imposed orthadoxy of totalitarian states. The 
only way The Varsity could satisfy this demand would be to 
censor readers' contributions, denying those whose views 
differ from The Varsity's a forum for their opinions. 

The Varsity rejects all these possibilities. We will not 
knowingly be compllclt In the printing of unchallenged, 
inaccurate facts. But, we will also not jeopardize our readers' 
right to self-expression or the paper's ability to function by 
attempting to police all reader c ontri butions. 

The letters page frequently carries incisive criticism of 
Varsity coverage and editorial positions, as well as advancing 
positions with which we stand In substantial disagreement. (The 
85% Quota Committee letter published on today's Write On 
page is an example of such a letter.) 

That the Friday letter drew a critical response Is not bad. It is 
healthv. Wr trust that, without encouraging Inaccuracy, the 
Varsity's letters page will continue to host a variety of views on 
current topics. 

This newspaper remains open to the views of Its readers. 

History may 
reinstate them 

Conservative history department 
teaching staff are leading a move to 
reinstate compulsory final exams in 
large enrolment lecture courses to 
combat the supposed threat posed by 
the booming pirate essay trade. 

The proposal would deal the New 
Program reforms, Introduced but a 
few years ago, a serious blow, sen- 
ding the department back to the 
feudal days when what counted was 
not original thought but the ability to 
regurgitate course material. 

(Conservative faculty early thls- 
spring manoeuvered the creation of a 
presidential advisory committee to 
review the contentious New Program 
which they claim has reduced stan- 
dards by eliminating the honours 
program and de-emphasizing exams 
and lecture courses.) 

Consideration of history's final 
exam policy, currently being studied 
by a departmental committee, 
curiously coincides with professor Jim 
Conacher's takeover of the history 
department chairmanship. Although 
Conacher may not have initiated the 
move himself, he has given some 
indication of where he stands on the 
matter by asking professors teaching 
large first year courses to defer 
making any decision to scrap finals 
until the committee reports back. 

"I see a swing to the right In 
curriculum matters over the next few 
years," history professor Bill Nelson, 
Conacher's only rival for the depart- 
ment chairmanship, said last year, 
"and t think Jim would join it more 
enthusiastically than I". And, he 
added, "Conacher had deep reser- 
vations (about the New Program)". 

But, the debate goes much further 
than the personalities involved in the 
current episode. The whole question 
of the purpose of university education 
is thrown into doubt by the con- 
servative faculty's offensive. 

Examinations have enjoyed a 
revered status in educational in- 
stitutions because they supposedly 
prove that a student has been diligent 
in his or her work. In reality, they only 
measure which students have been 
able to cram and can parrot the 
course contents in reply to generally 
irrelevant questions under stress 

The exam advocates undoubtedly 
would be content to reduce their argu- 
ment for finals to a defence of honesty 
and integrity In meeting course re- 
quirements. While the existence of 
pirate essay companies may suggest 
that increasingly large numbers of 
university students are submitting un- 
original work as their own, the answer 
is not to be found in ruling out exams 
where profs don't know their students 
closely enough to definitively con- 
clude whether thev were the ac- 
tual authors of the work they submit. 

Instead, the flourishing plagiarism 
should encourage teaching staff and 
students to re-examine the purpose of 
university education and within that 
context decide on the appropriate ( 
ethics to govern their behavior.

The Varsity 5 

Captain disputes 
critical letter 

That Ihe severest criticism of athletes and 
sports teams often comes from those who 
know the least of what they are talking about 
disturbs me. but does not surprise me. Such 
was the case in the September 22 issue of The 
Varsity in the article "Murphy's coaching is a 
'comedy oT errors'" byMr. Blair Christie and 
Mr. Jeff Hayes. However, I find it in- 
comprehensible that the editors of The Varsi- 
ty who are responsible for checking articles 
for accuracy could allow the glaring errors, 
Talse accusations, and inaccurate thinking to 
be printed. 

The poor performance of the Varsity 
football team against Ottawa is acknowledged 
by the players and coaches. However, the 
players who came under the heaviest 
criticism, Wayne Dunkley and Cor Dorel, 
were curiously the players who performed 
husi for the Blues. This can be borne out by 

statistics, films, and a reasonable un- 
derstanding of football. 

Dorel gamed II5 yards rushing, caught 
three passes, and was the Blues' best punt 
returner. In anybody's terms, those are ex- 
cellent statistics. The accusation, that Dorel 
look "nose dives into the turf" is a fantastic 
creation of someone's perverted imagination. 
No one who has ever seen Doret run and who 
knows anything about football could accuse 
him or that. If Mr. Christie or Mr. Hayes 
would like to see films of Doret running, I am 
sure something could be arranged. Doret was 
our finest offensive player in the Ottawa 
game, in the opinion of players, coaches, and 
others actively concerned with Varsity sports, 
such as former Varsity sports editor Paul 

There is no "fairy tale" regarding Wayne 
Dunkley's ability to pass a football. To watch 
him throw in any game is enough proof. In the 
Ottawa game, he was rarely given enough 
time to throw. Receiverswere running poor 
patterns and dropping passes. Had Messieurs 
Christie and Hayes paid a little more atten- 
tion to the game and/or asked some of the 
players, they would have known this. Steve 
Kerr will eventually be a fine quarterback. 
However, he himself would admit that at 
present he has neither the skills nor theinsight 
into the game that Dunkley has. 

For Mr. Christie and Mr. Hayes' benefit, 
Russ Mitchell plays guard, not centre as they 
maintained. That is something else they would 
have learned, had they watched the game a 
little more closely. 

Another disgusting feature of the article 
was the use of cute puns purely for literary 
effect without regard to meaningful state- 
ment. To say that right end Dave Quick, 
undoubtedly one of the most dedicated and 
hardest working member of the Blues, 

Blues Chris Sammut topples Ravens Marc Brule In Ottawa last Saturday. 

"wasn't too swift" because he became excited 
over making a fine catch in the game does not 
make sense. The attack is unrortunate 
because Dave is a sensitive person who is truly 
bewildered by the thoughtless insult. 

Ultimately, the blame for a football team's 
failures, whether injustified or not, is always 
absorbed by the coach. I do not intend to 
discuss coach Murphy's assets and shor- 
tcomings as a coach, but Mrs. Hayes and 
Mrs. Christie would be advised to forget their 
cliches and euphemisms and do their 
homework, researching some facts. In every 
season since coach Murphy has been at 
Toronto, the Blues have either won a cham- 

pionship or have been eliminated in tHe-last 
game or second last game. He is not a loser. 

It is difficult to defend against unjust 
criticism without sounding like sour grapes. 
The best method of deterring detractors is to 
win. HopeTully, the process has begun with 
this Saturday's victory over Carleton. 
Perhaps in this way. Mr. Christie and Mr. 
Hayes, aided by some uninformed Varsity 
editor, will be forced to eat their own words, 
which 1 believe is equivalent to eating shit.

CLM doesn 't like 
US arts dean 

Dean Greene has lived in Canada 
for 14 years and yel remains an 
American citizen. Thus, he remains 
part of the ever growing number of 
foreign citizens, in particular 
Americans, who leach in our 
schools. The 85% Canadian Quota 
Committee recognizes this trend as 
pari of the increasing domination of 
Canada hy the U.S. This take-over 
has reached the point where only 
49.9% or our professors are Cana- 
dian citizens. The Quota Committee 
interviewed Greene September 7, 
with the objective of getting Greene 
to commit himselT one way or the 
other on the issue of Canadianizing 
our universities — and he did. 

Greene agrees that the United 
Stales is an imperialist country and 
C anada is a colony. He also states 
that independence is a "very 
laudable end." But like all liberals, 
that was as far as he would go. He 
would not accept any concrete ac- 
tion — like the 85 per cent quota or 
taking out Canadian citizenship 
himself — to build a Canadian 

Dean Greene tried to play down 
Ihe importance of his position, 
saying that his powers were greatly 

"Conciliation, persuasion, and 
exhortation" were his only tools. 
But everyone knows that if you 
don't listen to a Dean when he is 
"persuading" then you are in 
trouble. The real reason for trying to 
make his position unimportant must 
be that Greene did not want to lake 
any responsibility on the question of 
Canadianization of the university. 

The Dean of Arts and Science at 
the University or Toronto - the 
largest faculty in the largest Cana- 
dian university - has an enormous 
responsibility to all Canadians. 

He must make sure that the 
university serves them. This is very 
important in a colony like Canada, 
where specific action must be taken 
to fight U.S. domination - im- 
perialism Dean Greene, however, 
says. "1 am not as emotionally 
committed as you are to righting all 
these wrongs." 

Greene also slated that he found it 
outrageously inhuman to sacrifice 
individuals lo art ideology, when 
referring lo the 85 per cent Quota. 
But Ihis ideology is Canadian in- 
dependencce. which Greene agrees 
with. The individuals are not citizens 

of Canada. Greene forgets that 
Canadians are being sacrificed to 
an ideology- continentalism, which 
means U.S. control. A colony 
struggling for its independence 
does have the right lo make 
demands on individuals. 

Why then would Greene reject 
ihis ideal? It is because he is one of 
ihe individuals who does not want to 
give in to the demands of 
Canadians. The clue to this jumps 
out or Greene's admission, " Iwon't 
change what I am by becoming a 
C anadian citizen." This follows 
logically from his statement that he 
considers himself a Boslonian, and 
thai citizenship to him is an in- 
tensely emotional thing. 

This is the true feeling of all 
reactionary non-citizens who refijse 
lo become Canadians. To them, 
rejecting their old citizenship, their 
emotional attachment to the U.S. is 
not a mere rormalily. Taking out 
Canadian citizenship would mean 
changing their allegiance, com- 
mitting themselves lo the Canadian 
people, and their struggle for in- 
dependence. By maintaining their 
American citizenship Dean Greene 
and his cohorts are committed to an 
ideology - that of the U.S. and the 
U.S., by Greene's own admission, is 
an imperialistic country. He does 
not want to "sacrifice" himself or 
his friends to the ideology of 
national liberation for Canada. 

Greene tries lo lead us on, though, 
when he says that he would be 
"scrupulous" in hiring that 
Canadians should be given 
preference, ll is obvious that to do 
this, he would have to submit in- 
dividuals lo an ideology, something 
thai he says he is loathe to do. This 
is a contradiction. Dean Greene 
would not and could not possibly be 
serious aboul hiring Canadians. 

1 1 is clear that he cannot be left t rt 
Ins own scruples. Stronger, more 
direct action is Ihe only way lo force 
Greene, and people like him, lo 
accept the fact that Canada must 
have Canadian universities. Because 
Greene refuses to accept this he says 
lliat he is "oul of sympathy with an 
85 per cent quota." 

Canadian students must ask 
themselves whal an American who 
has emotional ties with the im- 
perialist country that is oppressing 
Canadians, is doing in the position 
of Dean of Arts and Science in 
Canada's biggest university. 

He is a part of our problem. By 
Dl laking our side - the side of

GSU supports 
fees referendum 

The Graduate Students' Union 
welcomes the initiative taken by the 
Ontario Federation of Students in 
calling for a referendum on the fee 
increase. Actions, of this kind, 
leading to more substantive 
measures among the undergraduates 
is extremely encouraging. 

While we are not participating in 
Ihe referendum, we, as with un- 
dergraduates, are faced with severe 
Tee increases. Despite bookkeeping 
arrangements which the province 
has forced upon graduate schools, 
we have had our fees increased by

impressions contained in Mr. Slot-

Varsity (September 20lh) aboul the 
acceptability of some Arts and 
Science courses for admission to 
professional faculties. 

"King visited several classes to

Sociology courses may not be

true. My statements to the classes 
and lo individuals who enquired 
emphasized thai laking any course 
nol direclly connected lo the in-

those of an experimental nature, 
may involve a certain risk, and that 
students who were concerned about 
the degree or acceptability of their 
course choice should consult the 
admissions office or the faculty or 
school to which they intend to apply.

SMC faces financial woes 


St. Michael's College is facing 
bankruptcy, according to Arts and 
Science Dean Bob Greene. 

SMC and the other federated 
colleges. Victoria and Trinity, are 
faced with a financial crisis which he 
predicted will probably result in the 
termination of their present 
autonomous status. 

He was speaking to about 50 
students Saturday at the founding 
conference of the arts and science 
student union. 

The crisis comes as a result of 
steadily growing deficits for 
religiously affilated colleges which 
receive less than full provincial 
grants per student. In order to 
receive full grants they would have 
to relinquish their autonomy and 
religious connections. 

When reached Monday Father 
John Kellv. president of SMC. 

agreed with Greene "it's an annual 
tight to stay alive. We live from one 
year to the next." 

He added that "I haven't heard 
of any threat to our autonomy. St. 
Michael's is certainly not prepared 
to go secular." 

Greene, who took office July I, 
also said that he could see "no 
possible rationale" for the present 
division of subjects within the facul- 
ty between six college and 22 un- 
iversity departments. 

He said this division of subjects 
was based on old academic prin- 
ciples which no longer have any 

Asked whether the value of a U 
of T degree had diminished, Greene 
replied, "rumours like this persist 
because or the nostalgia or certain 
faculty for the old honours courses." 
"The New Program has been 
traumatic for some faculty," he 


The New Program, which 
aholished the distinction between 
honours and general courses and put 
less emphasis on exams, is under 
review by a presidential advisory 

Conservative critics claim that 
academic standards have diminished 
since its implementation three years 

Greene said that the total 
budget of the faculty or the 
departments is not public in- 
formation. He added it was up to 
each department chairman to set his 
department's budget. 

Greene said faculty salaries make 
up 70 per cent of the budget. 

He also pointed out that the 
increase in ^grants yearly has been % 
exceeded by increases in faculty f 
salaries, therefore cuts have to be 
shifted to other items. 

Arts and Science dean Bob Greene says that colleges with religious 
affiliation may face bankruptcy. 

Few students at demo 


Approximately 20 people 
yesterday morning rallied in front of 
Simcoe Hall in support of the foui 
students arrested at last year's first 
"open the stacks" occupation. 

After the rally, they went down to 
Old City Hal! court 33 where the 
trials are taking place. 

Bill Schabas ol the open stacks 
Committee said that he "hopes the 
crowd will make sure the judge is 
fair, hy their presence." 

The twenty demostralors vocally 
supported the accused and chanted, 
" Drop the charges. Jail Sword' 
open the stacks." 

Steve Moore, who had been at the 
first occupation las March stated at 
the rally that "the university is 
supported by the society as a whole 
and lives oil it like a parasite, but 
when it comes to the university 
doing anything - like day care and 
opening the library - for the com- 
munity, it doesn't contribute." 

Using a loud speaker, Renate 
Manthei, who had also 'been at the 
first occupation, expressed the 
gruoup's support of the four on trial. 

"We're here to support the poor 
people who were arrested last year 
while supporting open stacks, she 
said. We were all part of the occupa- 
tion so we should have been arrested

"We who work in the university 
are in the informed and privileged 
group that should carry its full 
responsibility in caring for the less 
fortunate," according to president 
John Evans. 

This admonishment came in a 
statement kicking off the beginning 
of the I972 United Appeal cam- 
paign at U of T. He criticized 
university stall for their lack of 
support in previous years. 

"In I97I only 2,682 persons 
contributed to the $147,041 raised 
within the university", he wrote, but 
there were more than 9,000 persons 
on our payroll." 

The letter stated that "if 400 of 
the 6,400 persons who did not con- 
tribute through our campaign last 
year will do so, this will represent an 
increase of 1 5 per cent and enable us 
to meet our share of [he increased 

"The welfare of the unfortunate 
members of our society... is the 
responsibility or all those who are 
able to help, whether their con- 
tribution can be large or small", he 

"Regular payroll deductions of 
even a small amount can produce a 
helpful annual total."

Campus Centre stalemate: 


For over 10 years, the University of 
Toronto's lack of a student centre has 
been a source of frustration for the 
Students" Administrative Council, a con- 
cern which has received much thought, 
planning, and negotiation without 
success. This university Is one of the few 
major campuses In North America to 
lack such a centre. 

One viewpoint asserts that without a 
focus for student activity the U of T 
cannot become a true community, while 
the opposing one argues that the size 
and diversity of this university make a 
single centre a simplistic and impractical 

These basic divisions of thought 
have determined campus centre plan- 
ning at U of T. The former held 
prominence until early 1969 and nearly 
led SAC to success In obtaining a cam- 
pus centre building. 

The latter emerged from study and 
re-thinking of problems of the U of T 
environment which took place after the 
collapse of the previous plans. Having a 
broader perspective, it considers the 
university environment as a whole and 
relates campus centre planning to the 
university's position and social respon- 
sibilities within its urban environment, to 
the general planning of the university, 
and to the purposes of campus life. This 
viewpoint holds precedence today. 


cohesion at U of T is partially due to its 
growth as a federation of colleges. First 
University College was established as 
part of the university, then the sectarian 
colleges of Victoria, St. Mlchale's, Knox, 
Wycliffe, and Trinity became linked with 
U of T, leading to the development of 
professional schools and faculties. In 
1906, the University of Toronto Act es- 
tablished the university's present 
framework of administration. 

From the federations until 1950, 
there was gradual development of the 
university and expansion of the city. The 
originally rural university was enveloped 
by an urban environment for which It had 
made no provisions. U of T's tendency 
became to turn Its back on the sur- 
rounding city. 

In the late 1950's and early 60's, the 
growth of student population forced the 
university to break the boundaries it had 
previously accepted and to expand west 
across St. George Street. First the 
School of Nursing, then plants to provide 
for the university's physical needs, then 
Ramsay Wright, Sidney Smith Hall, New 
Physics, the McLellan Labs and New 
College were constructed. While 
providing excellent facilities, these 
buildings turned the university into a 
bastion of single functional ism. 

There was no consideration of the 
city, no effort to Integrate or com- 
municate with surrounding communities. 
Nor, was there thought of creating a true 
university community In the area west of 
St. George. Expansion tactics were the 
arbitrary weilding of power. The Univer- 
sity became even less integrated within 
Its urban context.

would create merely another campus 
focal point which would further disperse 
activity, said the manual, and would 
separate non-academic activities from 
other university activities, thus reflecting 
the attitude that non-academic time Is 
non-educational -time. Doubt was also 
voiced whether the cultural and leisure 
activities of the large and diverse cam- 
pus could converge upon one focus.

to provide a rich and communally- 
shared educative experience in both 
academic and non-academic life; and 
the university must integrate within its 
urban context, offering greater educa- 
tional and cultural services to wider 

The basic guidelines for present 
campus centre planning were set last 
October when SAC published "The 
CAmpus as the Campus Centre", a ma- 
nual prepared by members of the de- 
partment of Architecture. Employed by 
SAC through the summer of 1971, this 
group, composed of Professor Doug 
Engel and five students, made a detailed 
study of campus facilities and student 
life. An unsuccessful Campus Centre 
Advisory Committee, with representa- 
tives from SAC, the faculty, the adminis- 
tration, and the Board of Governors, 
was set up by SAC to supervise the team. 

The manual re-lnterated the 
position that no single student centre 
should be built, that Instead the campus 
as a whole, particularly the southwestern 
area, be carefully studied and markedly 
changed. The main area studies, west of 
St. George and south of Harbord, ac- 
comodates the most concentrated stu- 
dent activity on campus. The architects 
deplored the "monolithic features" and 
"single functionalism" of the massive 
Ramsey Wright, Sidney Smith Hall, New 
Physics, and the MacLellan Physical 
Labs. St. George, they felt, Is a cold 
freeway which cuts the campus In half. 

Supporting their vfew that 
improvements of the campus should 
take the place of a single student centre 
building, Engel's group argued that 
focusing activities in one centre would 
be done at the expense of the rest of the 


that effort should be aimed at 
"defining the features of the university 
which have best potential to ac- 
commodate a broad range of activities". 
The attempt should also be made to 
"develop an urban character" and to 
"suture the university's frayed edges 
back into its urban context". Specifically, 
It was proposed that St. George be 
turned into a boulevard, that a winter 
garden, and pub be built on the eastern 
plaza of Sid Smith and that the western 
plaza become a summer terrace; that the 
four massive buildings be linked by a 
series of "Interventions" which would 
contain restaurants, banks, theatres et 
cetera; that Huron and Wilcocks streets 
be closed; and that a park-and 
amphitheatres be created at their 

These suggestions and the project 
Itself were a continuation of the work 
started by Wayne Richardson as SAC 
campus centre co-ordinator during the 
two previous years. In one sense, they 
develop his philosophy of campus plan- 
ning into concrete plans. Yet, In another 
sense, they narrow his campus planning 

Faculty attending a Department of 
Architecture meeting strongly criticized 
Engel, accusing him of raising no 

political demands in his manual. No 
concern had been shown for the sur- 
rounding community, no brakes upon 
university expansion had been planned, 
few principles about general university 
planning had been put forward, they 

Contrasting with these reactions 
was that of Toronto architect George 
Banz, who wrote an article giving un- 
qualified praise to the project's results, 
calling them an "enriched development 
approach scaled down to the needs of 
human individuals rather than 


Engel admitted the limited scope 
of the manual while stressing its practical 
nature. Essentially, the purpose was to 
determine student needs and then plan 
to fulfill them. Engel said that he and the 
students involved had debated the scope 
of their report. While supporting the 
wider themes In principle, he stated, the 
study was meant to contain concrete 
plans of action to be presented to SAC 
and the administration with hopes of 
their realization. So, It was meant to 
avoid alienating possible support: 

Engel also asserted that the report 
does have a dynamic and political im- 
portance as an alternative to the con- 
ventional building and development 
method the university uses. It offers "a 
decentralized concept of campus plan- 
ning", he said. 

The beginning of this concern for 
capus planning rather than campus cen- 
tre planning occurred in early 1970 when 
SAC decided on the need for a campus 
centre co-ordinator, choosing Richard- 
son who had been a leading student 
negotiator in earlier attempts to attain a 
campus centre building. This move

genesis of a community conce| 

followed almost a year of relative In- 
activity, the aftermath of losing a student 
centre SAC had felt was within its grasp. 
The renewed study of campus needs and 
facilities and the development of a new 
philosophy of planning were partially a 
reaction to this failure. 

There are differing views of the 
negotiations which led to apparent 
success and then to failure. These vary 
from a feeling that both SAC and the 
administration truly attempted to create 
the centre, but failed due to mistrust, 
lack of communication, and cir- 
cumstances, though neither was actually 
to blame, to a feeling that the administra- 
tion and the Board of Governors caused 
the failure thr'ough the manouevering of 
business interests and the fear of stu- 
dent radicalism and power. 

BY FALL 1967, SAC HAD a final 
design for the proposed centre, which 
was to be built on the vacant lot at the 
corner of St. George and Russell. They 
had received promises that the provin- 
cial government would fund half of the 
required $4 million and that the ad- 
ministration would pay $250,000. Bids 
were obtained from the Bank of Montreal 
and the Canadian Imperial Bank of 
Commerce to fund the remainder of 
needed capital, some$1 3 /« million. When 
SAC accepted a B of M offer of 
$1,837,000 for 8,500 square feet in the 
student building for exclusive rights to 
on-campus banking for 50 years, they 
felt the centre was in their hands. It was 
to contain social and commercial ser- 
vices In inadequate supply on campus, 
and was to become the seat of student 
government ad the hub of student 

But, the Board of Governors 
declared the agreement unsuitable 
because it required exclusivity, and they 
told, SAC to re-open the bidding. This 
angered the students who accused the 
board of stalling the centre. They noted 
that Canadian Imperial Bank of Com- 
merce directors outnumbered B of M 
directors on the Board and that the 
CIBC was the university's banker. 
They also charge that the administration 
was stalling because it feared student 
success in these negotiations might 
provide the radical student council with 
greater power. 

While the administration claimed to 
be enthusiastic about a student union 
building and had provided some of the 
funding, SAC dismissed their claims of 
good, will, citing the Board, failure to 
offer any satisfactory solution of finan- 
cing to replace the B of M offer. 

Then, in March, 1968, the province 
granted 95 per cent of funding for non- 
commercial space in the campus centre. 
The Board of Governors offered to pay 
for the remainder of such space. Feeling 
the students were now In a better posi- 
tion, the administration expected SAC to 
accept the new arrangements. But, the 
students continued to refuse to re-open 
the bidding, sure that the agreement with 
the B of M was still the only course of 
action which gave certainty of providing 
all needed funds. 

provincial government decided that 
U of T would be given no more revenue 
for new construction and revoked the 
agreement to fund the campus centre. 

There was another serious problem 
In negotiating for the centre. While the 
argument over financing was still raging, 
the city decided to adopt a get tough 
attitude toward U of T and enforced a 
bylaw requiring 20 foot building setback 

from the street. The campus centre had 
been planned to extend to the sidewalk 
of St. George. Remembering a past 
history of city concessions to the uni- 
versity, the administrators, architects, 
and students had not worried about the 
bylaws. Arrangements had already been 
worked out with the departments of 
public works and roads. But, the City of 
Toronto Planning Department decided 
that St. George was too important an 
artery to be encroached upon. 

SAC then proposed that the 
building be redesigned as a narrower, 
higher structure which could retain all 
previous facilities, but U of T Physical 
Plant stated that the site could not withs- 
tand a taller building. Therefore, unless 
the traffic flow along St. George was 
eased or the physical structure of the 
street was changed there could be no 
campus centre at this location. The un- 
iversity found there was little it could do 
to change these conditions. 

A final obstacle was the Toronto 
Library Board who objected to the stu- 
dent centre being built immediately 
neighbouring the Central Library and 
were ready to oppose a building permit. 
Considering its problems, the university 
made little actual effort toward applica- 
tion for a permit. 

Although the university adminis- 
tration and SAC did collaborate to 
an extent in negotiating with the city, 
their communication was poor and the 
administration's actions appeared to 
result only after the repeated insistence 
of the students. 

construction of the campus centre was 
originally slated to begin, the project had 
reached an impasse. Then SAC presi- 
dent Steve Langdon, said In March, 1969 
that little more could be done: there 
would be no campus centre for at least 
two more years. 

When SAC hired Richardson, in 
early 1970, he was requested to recon- 
sider the identity, purposes, and plan- 
ning of the campus centre. In May of the 
same year, SAC also commissioned 
Brian Carter, an architect just graduated 
from the university, to work under 
Richardson's supervision, and asked 
him to make a study of infilling the area 
around Ramsey Wright and Sid Smith 
with facilities that might constitute a 
campus centre. Already, the question 
was whether a single building could 
satisfy campus needs or whether the 
improvement of an area of the campus 
by the addition of desired services and 
facilities was preferable. 

To obtain the revenue necessary to 
pay for these studies and the work in- 
tended to follow them SAC held a 
referendum which requested students' 
permission to levy an additional dollar In 
SAC fees per student each year until a 
campus centre was built. The students 
agreed and the first levy as set for the 
academic year of 70-71, giving SAC an 
additional $20,000 annually. 

Richardson and Carter worked 
through the summer and brought out a 
report In September which set o.uLlhe. 
alternatives SAC could follow in planning 
a campus centre. Stating that SAC must 
establish planning principles for the uni- 
versity to express their wishes con- 
cerning the physical development of the 
entire campus, Richardson argued that a 
single building was unsuitable. Despite 
its facilities it would merely be another 
monolith - inflexible, with no provision 
for campus development or links with 
the surrounding community, he said. 

While the university had facilities for 
study and meditation It lacked "the 
proprer environment for discussion and 
experimentation" needed by the in- 
dividual to educate himself. 

Carter's report suggested that new 
facilities should be located in the most 
intensely used area of the campus, so as 
to attract the greatest numbers and act 
as the true focus of student life. In this 
report, the area bounded by St. George, 
Huron, Harbord, and Wllcocks was first 
set out as the location for campus centre 
planning. Carter described a plan to use 
the space between the massive 
academic buildings which was the 
forerunner of the interventions set out in 
"The Campus as the Campus Centre" 


report by suggesting that the uni- 
versity develop a consensus about its 
position in society which could guide 
further planning. To determine policy he 
proposed a committee of students, 
faculty, and administrators. An architect 
should be chosen by SAC to analyze 
previous planning campus centre plan- 
ning and then devise a detailed plan to 
satisfy the new objectives, said Richard- 
son. Finally, he suggested that some 
sources of income other than the student 
levy should be investigated. 

In December, Richardson 
presented the "Campus Centre Project 
Manifesto" which summarized the 
philosophy behind the previous report, 
linking the concept of a campus centre to 
wider concerns of the university. He 
aligned the theme with that of turning U 
of T into a complete educator. The 
"broadening of individual perspectives", 
enriching "the appreciation of life", and 
"stimulating critical faculties" are best 
accomplished in an invironment offering 
wide choice, he said. 

This university "limits the expres- 
sion of life" by its tendency toward 
a single academic function and by its 
turning away from the city. It has become 
a place of academic business which 
closes at night, he stated. The campus 
centre project's purpose then was "to 
nurture new life by breaking down single 

Richardson felt the lack of services 
at U of T reflected an ivory tower 
approach which must be erased before 
the university could become an attractive 
place to live. Commercial operations on 
campus are thus necessary to provide 
variety as well as services. Adding that 
the university's desires and plans of 
expansion were driving variety and 
richness of life from the surrounding 
community, Richardson equated a plan 
to improve campus conditions with one 
which would attempt to stop that ex- 
pansion and make the facilities of the 
campus open to the wider community. 
He also attributed "the shallowness In 
the quality of life" here in part to the 
transience of studens and stated a desire 
to plan an environment conducive to the 
creation of "a body of citizens". 

__ of architecture firms to study the cam- 
pus planning situation at U of T and to 
present a summary of their feelings to 
SAC. These were received in January. 
1971 and studied as SAC considered 
hiring one of the firms to fully develop 
the new concepts. Richardson also put 
forward motions that SAC ask the uni- 
versity administration to establish a plan- 
ning body students could communicate 
with and that some revenue be put into 
small scale Improvements such as 

benches and trash cans around campus. 

In February, SAC president Ron the e 
Hurd began conferring with Department ^.he i 
of Architecture chairman Peter Prangell. Tiing 
Prangell asserted that his department mitte 
could handle the job of developing the Slm( 
concepts, chose Engel as project co- to ai 
ordinator, and set out a preliminary line 
scheme of the work that would be re- Whe 
quired. The next month, SAC agreed to mee 
pay $18,000 for the work outlined, set of pi 
aside a budget allotment for the kind of told 
small scale Improvements Richardson tact 
had suggested, and determined to con- Boai 
tinue the student levy. for e 
So was born the "Campus as the told 
Campus Centre" report and the ac- 
companying Campus Centre Advisory arra 
Board. Bob Spencer, who sat on the and 
board as SAC president for the 1971-72 groi 
academic year, recalled that soon prof 
students had further cause for dls- theii 
iltusionment with the administration. only

One of the proposals which met rnai 
favour and offered a chance to publicize and 
the report was the winter garden and wht

a temporary pub there in September. It bet

had pannelled sides picturing the plans Evs

overshadowing the other proposals in Ga 
the manual. Noting the pub's popularity, wet 
Simcoe Hall approved the principle of a %yw 
permanent enclosed pub in front of Sid coi 
Smith. The Board of Governors gave the By 
go-ahead for its planning and ordered lefl 
the Physical Plant to check Its feasibility. air 
By the end of October, executive vice- fac 
president Alex Rankin was presenting a sta 
proposal to SAC that the administration kn> 
provide $250,000, arrange for design or 
and construction of the pub, and appoint wo 
a full-time manager. A combined stu- pu 
dent-faculty body could fix prices and tyii 
service policy, he said. SAC felt the ad- sti 
ministration was pushing the issue to- 
ward its own ends, and Spencer stated off 
that students would accept adminlstra- th< 
tive financing only if SAC controlled the re l 
arrangement and actlvltes of the pub. P r ' 
acceptance of the pub also caused sa 
both Spencer and Engel to voice fears He 
that the Board of Governors was using tru 
the pub as a concession which would ca 
enable It to scrap the more Important so 
features of the report. Engel called the 
pub "a panacea to real environmental P>" 
problems facing the campus" and stated be 
that plans called for a true winter garden ne 
on the eastern Sid Smith plaza rather Jo 
than a mere enclosed pub. Later, *-* e 
Physical Plant was to find that the plaza t° 
foundations cannot withstand the kind of re 
structure called for in the report, and the d< 
search began for an alternative site. tc

SAC had good reason to feel that 
the administration had little concern for 
'he i^'ues raised about campus plan- 
ning. » he failure of the advisory com- 
mittee meant that SAC had to approach 
Slmcoe Hall and the Board of Governors 
to argue for the project without a ready 
line of support and . communication 
When Spencer phoned to arrange a 
meeting with Board members in charge 
of planning, he says he was put aside an 
told they would contact him. Such con- 
tact never came. Finally, he walked Into a 
Board meeting to assert SAC's desires 
for a forum on campus planning He was 
told to write a letter. 

The meeting was eventually 
arranged, though only Spencer Engel, 
and one of the students in the planning 
group were allowed to speak to the 
property committee of the Board. To 
their disappointment, they were met by 
only two actual members of the Board of 
Governors plus a number of Simcoe Hall 
administrators. The student reps were 
given a short period to explain their 
views. Although copies of the manual 
had been sent to administrators and 
Board members, few of them had read it, 
stated Spencer. He added that while 

showed knowledge of the project 
and offered support in principle for some 
of its proposals, he opposed the decen- 
tralized concept of campus planning 
"which was the central theme of the 
manual". The property committee 
made no concrete recommendations, 
and referred the question to the time 
when the Governing Council would come 
into effect. 

When a meeting was arraned 
between the campus centre project 
members and new U of T president John 
Evans, Evans appeared concerned and 
receptive but made no commitments. 

concluded that serious mobiliza- 
tion of students would be necessary to 
influence university planning. To 
familiarize students with the new campus 
planning concepts, the student council 
distributed 19,000 copies of a special UC 
Gargoyle describing the manual. Hopes 
were that students might become well 
k^nouh) Informed that a referendum 
could'be held to endorse the proposals. 
By the end of the spring term, SAC was 
left with a detailed planning report which 
aimed at basic changes in campus 
facilities and planning with negotiations 
stalled once again, without sure 
knowledge of general student awareness 
or desires concerning the Issues. The 
work by Engel's group, the pub, and the 
publicity had cost almost $30,000, emp- 
tying SAC coffers of funds gained by 
student levies. 

The student council which took 
office this spring offers less support for 
the Campus as the Campus Centre 
report than did last year's SAC. This has 
prompted Spcner's criticism that they 
"shelved the project for the summer". He 
said that SAC vice-president John 
Helliwell was to present a policy study to 
the student council executive concerning 
campus planning Issues, but failed to do 

Helliwell didn't make a formal 
presentation, but he did put a motion 
before SAC asking for affirmation of the 
new planning designs. This motion failed 
jo pass because some SAC members 
Oelt $ pport of the report would tie them 
to a philosophy advocating wider social 
responsibilities, a halt to expansion, and 
decentralized campus planning. Motions 
to once again reject the concept of a 

single student centre building and to set 
up a committee to examine the feasablli- 
ty of the manual's suggested services 
and facilities were passed. According to- 
Helliwell, this committee was a total 
failure, having objectives which were 
"overly ambitious". 

Another of Spencer's criticisms 
concerns a SAC failure to obtain 315 
Bloor as the home of a permanent cam- 
pus pub. Apparently, the administration 
showed some willingness to give 
students this building, but the new SAC 
didn't approach Simcoe Hall to request 
it. Located beside Varsity Arena, this pub 
would have been "a great boon" and 
"would have made a mint" over the 
summer, said Spencer. 

Helliwell admitted SAC could 
possibly have gained control of the 
building If it moved sooner, but stated it 
was undesireabe, being far from the 
focu of campus activity and requiring 
much renovation. The desires is to 
create a true tavern restaurant on cam- 
pus rather than a simple pub, he said, 
maintaining that the SAC services com- 
mission Is continuing to negotiate for 
such facilities. The administration may 

and a long process of forums and dis- 
cussion hopefully will provide the In- 
formation. A referendum may be held to 
determine whether the one dollar cam- 
pus centre levy should be continued. 

Helliwell said it is probable nothing 
concrete will be accomplished for a long 
while because it will require time for the 
new Governing Council system of plan- 
ning to become established and known. 
The administrative policy toward the last 
year's campus planning manual Is a 
unknown, stated Helliwell, though SAC 
feels the university may now be using it 
as a partial planning guideline for plan- 
ning wider facilities must evaluate it 
quickly to attain a consensus which will 
enable SAC to have a firmly based policy 
supporting or dissenting with possible 
developments, he said. 

now guides some of Simcoe Hall's 
designs, Planning chairman Frank 
Hastle said that administrative go ahead 
has been given for the reserching of the 
physical feasablllty of a few of the 
manual's suggestions and favourable 
findings may lead toward

of development and that the Issues

plans and guidance concerning student 

After three years of developing 
themes and designs of campus planning, 
SAC may this year gain a mandate from 
students to determine Its policy. There 
will probably be a campaign to develop 
student interest and knowledge. Whe- 
ther these efforts can lead to a more im- 
portant role for students In university 
planning is questionable. There is almost 
total lack of communication between 
Simcoe Hall and the student council 
concerning these Issues. Whlfe the ad- 
ministration speaks of a desire to work 
with SAC and to have student needs 
revealed, past history would suggest that

have already budgetted money for this. 

the university gained ownership of 
the Central Library building. Hellwell 
indicated a fear that the administration 
may offer these facilities to SAC as a 
campus centre. The student council 
would refuse the offer, he said. 

The intentions of SAC this year will 
be to develop a true student consensus 
concerning campus planning, said 
Helliwell. While he and others on the 
student council hold the same 
philosophy and desires as last year's 
report, they feel simple ratification of its 
proposals would be too ar- 
bltrary.Therefore, SAC Is taking "a step 
back" before determining a policy of 
student Involvement In the planning 
process, according to Helliwell, attem- 
pting to avoid "the built In prejudices" of 
the campus centre report. 

This review will include further 
analysis of student needs, much publici- 
ty to present the alternatives of campus 
planning, and a full survey of student 
opinions on these issues. The problem 
will be to fully and fairly present the 
alternatives. It will be difficult to cover all 
possibilities, let alone present the pros 
and cons of each, said Helliwell. 

The current SAC feels that holding 
a referendum is too simplistic a method 
to account for student opinion In such a 
complex issue as this. Rather, the survey 

Contrary to SAC's speculation, 
there has been no turn-about bringing 
administrative favor to rest upon the 
suggestions of the campus planning 
manual. Rankin said that the project 
"intrigued" the Board of Governors and 
the administration, but had led to few 
thoughts of implementation. Construc- 
tion of the facilities proposed would take 
"25 years", he stated, and would require 
much capital. 

Presently, the university hasn't the 
funds needed to construct already ap- 
proved academic services (Innis 
College, mens' athletic facilities), he 
added. The provincial government con- 
tinues its determination to give U of T no 
more funding, feeling It has surplus 
space and sufficient facilities. So, there 
is little chance of the manual's themes 
becoming anything but a dream for a 
long while. 

At the moment, costing studies of 
the suggestions are pointless, said 
Rankin. He added that the only hope for 
revenue could presently come only from 
campaigns for donations. 

Evans has re-arranged senior staff 
to include Jack Sword as vice-president 
in charge of planning and thus intends to 
wed physical and academic planning 
together more formally. The Governing 
Council has a sub-committee for 
resources and planning which will 
decide ultimate policy and priorities. 
Both Rankin and Sword assert that these 

it is actually reluctant to consider these 

If there is to be collaboration and 
communication. SAC will have to press 
for it. With non-academic services low on 
the list of the university's priorities, If 
SAC does manage to advance to a point 
where costing estimates and funding are 
required it may have to arrange for these 
things on its own. If negotiations with the 
university prove partially successful. 
SAC. will then face further negotiations 
with the city. 

There will be no single campus 
centre. The new philosophy with its 
themes concerning campus planning 
and the purposes of the university 
chances greater opposition from ad- 
ministrators than did desires for an in- 
dependent building. If the new themes 
are to become reality, there must be 
some merging of student and general 
university planning, closer working with 
and influence upon the administration. 
Previous administrations have desired to 
wield their power without student in- 
terference. Even if some of the facilities 
suggested by the manual are to be 
implemented, they will effect the campus 
as a whole rather than one centre. Again, 
there must be change of general un- 
iversity planning. 

or even the suggested facilities will 
become realities for the university in the 
near future appear dim.

U of T bodies receive grant to study cities 


Two U of T bodies will receive 
;i federal grant to study municipal 
government and financing, it was 
announced last week. 

According to William 
Michaelson, director of the Centre 
for Urban and Community Studies. 
Urban Affairs Minister Ron 

Basford himself agreed to the grant. 

Research will be the joint effort 
of the urhan and community centre 
and lite Institute for the Quan- 
lilative Analysis of Social and 
liconomic Policy, said institute head 
Albert Breton, who will direct the 

As yet not contract has been 

signed and no money has been 
received. Breton stated. 

Michaelson believes that full 
notification of the size of the grant 
and Ottawa's requirements will be 
received next week. 

He was unable lo verify a 
Toronto Star report fixing the grant 

al $2.12.095. The Star article also 
slated that research is to focus on 
the financial situation of Winnipeg, 
Toronto and Halifax to determine 
the effects of federal and municipal 
grants on municipal spending, the 
use of municipal services by sub- 
urban communities and the effects 
of /iminc on land markets. 

Farmers' union seeks city aid for boycott 

National Farmers Union (NFU) is 
moving lo consolidate urban sup- 
port of its boycott against Kraft 
products during the next two 

National boycott co-ordinator 
Don Kossick told CUP Saturday 
that urban support committees 
should he established in most major 
Canadian cities by the end of this 

Kossick had just arrived from 
Toronto where he met with the 
newly formed Toronto boycott com- 
mittee. He was in Ottawa to talk to 
members of the local committee 
here and left yesterday lo meet with 
the Kingston organization. 

He plans to use the next several 
months to strengthen the existing 
urban support committees and to 
establish new ones. The process is 
slow because ihe NFU's only source 
of operating hinds are farmers 
willing to pay S25 a year in 
membership fees. During Ihe 
summer, collection slows down 
because people are out working the 
land. Imougli money is now coming 
in |o permil an acceleration of the 

The Manitoba New 
Democratic Party government 
appears to have backed down from 
ils plans lo assist Kraft in the con- 
slruclion of a rapeseed oil plant, 
Kossick said. The NDP incurred the 
wrath of parly members (who 
voted to support the boycott) the 
Manitoba co-operative movement 
which owns its own rapeseed plant, 
and the NFU. 

If the plant is scrapped, the 
Nl-U docs not intend lo let the NDP 
off lightly. It wants a public an- 
nouncement that the government 
has dropped ils plans, along with a 
message of support for the boycott. 

The Saskatchewan NDP was 
forced into a similar position after 
the Moose Jaw support committee 
circulated a petition demanding that 
ihe government not allow Kraft 
products to be used al the 
Saskalchewan summer games. 

The NFU has learned that the 
Saskatchewan govern men I has 
slopped using Kraft products, at 
least in the Regina area. No public 
announcement of this decision has 
been made. 

Kossick also said that the 
spectacular rise in the cost of food 
this summer was a direct result of 
increased corporate control in ihe 

food industry. The so-called 
rationalization of agriculture is 
being stepped up, with more farmers 
being forced off the land. 

Kossick said that large 
multinational corporations like 
Kraft arc able lo dictate their own 
profits while the farmers and con- 
sumers suffer. 

Dcspile the continual rise in 
food prices, governments have 
refused lo consider taking action. 
Because of this, people must con- 
sider [he corporations and the 
eovcrnmcnl as their enemies, he 

Prime Minister Trudeau said 
recently lhat his government has no 
intention of introducing food price 

It appears the new British 
Columbia NDP government will 
introduce provincial regulations to 
try to control the spiraling cost of 
living al an emergency session of the 
legislature. Kossick added. 

He believes that costs will 
decline only when people actively 
seek alternate food processing and 
disinbution methods by confronting 
monopoly control that the cor- 
porations now hold. 

In regard to the latter, a recent 
study by management consultants 
Price Waterhouse for the Borough 
of York showed that the financial 
benefits of high-rise apartment con- 
struclion were almost neglibible. 

Proposals for the study were 
made X months ago by Richard 
Sobernian. then director of the Cen- 
tre for Urban Studies. Six areas of 
research were set out: 

•possible means of financing city 
urban expansion, *a I tern a live 
solutions to urban fiscal problems, • 
restructuring of local government as 
an alternative to purely fiscal 
solutions, • the influence of the 
fiscal system and land use controls 
on urban land values. * the effect of 
transportation investments on land 
values and the potential for finan- 
cing ihem, and • a detailed study of 
problems and prospects of urban 
public economy of Metro Toronto. 

Michaelson predicted that the 
sludy will lake four years and stated 
llial further grants will probably be 
required as il develops.

Decision to be made by Metro 

Marks attacks meeting on Spadina s future 


Alderman June Marks denounced the 
Monday night special Works Committee 
hearings on the uses of the Spadina ex- 
pressway ditch, 

"In ihe light of Metro's refusal to hold 
public meetings hearings, this meeting is 
redundant," she said. "These hearings are at 
the city level but the decision will be taken by 
Metro." she added. 

At present the Spadina (officially named 
the William R.Allen Expressway) ends at 
Lawrence Avenue. Metro Council has 
proposed ah "arterial road"(four-lane as op- 
posed to the expressway's original six) to be 
extended to Eglinton. 

The "arterial road" has been dubbed the 
"mini-expressway" by reformers who see the 
road Spadina's return, thinly disguised. 

Ying Hope agreed with Marks that while 
it was Metro's decision, Metro Council 
should reopen hearings. 

"Metro's legality is at question tonight, 
whether we oppose or support the ex- 
pressway", he said.. The Premier has ruled 
that the province will not participate in any 
construction of the Spadina, but Metro has 
$1.5 million of its own which it may use to go 
ahead with construction. 

He concluded, this would be 
unprecedented and unconscionable. 

Countering the anti-mini expressway 
iroup were residents from North Forest Hill 
he area near Bathurst and Lawrence Streets, 
including Esther Shiner leader of the Go 
Spadina campaign. 

They spoke of traffic congestion and the 
danger to school children in their area 
resulting from traffic pouring off the Spadina 
spur through their streets. In all, six 
delegations, claiming the support of 40.000 
people, urged the paving of the arterial road, 

U ofT professor 
of "The Bad Trip" abook devoted to the case 
against the expressway outlined some of the 
options to attack these problems. 

"The Allen Expressway should be closed 

The future of the Spadina Expressway has not yet been decided. Pro-expressway groups want It paved. 

south ol Vorkdale" he advised. "This is an 
inlerin solution to stop traffic on residential 
streets until mass transit is built." A subway is 
planned to be built on the site before 1980. 

The ditch may be transformed into a park 
and large commulor parking lots. It may also 
be the site of Buckminster Fuller-designed 
apartments, or a scenic boating canal. 

Related to the future of the Spadina ditch 
is the choice of rapid transit route. On 
September 8 Metro Council recommended 
that the subway line be constructed by the cut- 
and-coyer method through Cedarvale Ravine. 

It desired "proper resoration" of that ravine 
and the Nordheimer Ravine. 

Board of Education trustee Fiona Nelson 
pledged support for the Bathurst, as opposed 
to the Spadina. rapid transit route. 

"The ravines are irreplacable', she said I 
know" that the city is already all but 
unanimously in support of the Bathurst route' 
I am here to strengthen your resolve." 

A new theme at this meeting was strained 
relations between Metro and the province 
over the arterial road, and between the city 
and Metro over the subway route and Metro's 

decision against public hearings. 

"Premier Davis is a dictator" claimed 
pro-expressway Shiner. By reversing Metro's 
decision to build [he Spadina, he has made a 
monkey out of Metro. 

A supporter added, "Metro should secede 
from Ontario." 

Ward 5 aldermanic candidate Colin 
Vaughan countered that "Metro wil be 
respected only if it respects its component 
parts. 1 f Metro ignores the wishes of the City 
and the Borough of York in this matter, it 
may mean the destruction of Metro."

First students graduate 

Halifax community legal course a success 

HALIFAX (CUP) — Twenty- 
seven Halifax laymen have 
graduated from what appears lo be 
Canada's first community course in 
para-legal work. 

The program to aid working class 
citizens in Halifax's north end area 
was undertaken by the Dalhousie 
University legal aid service. 

After five weeks of intensive legal 
(raining, the majority of the 
graduates were put out to work as 
part-time counsellors to assist legal 
md clients seeking divorces. Another 
two were hired on a full-lime basis in 
a legal aid centre to assist, advise, 
research and counsel in family court 

The program concentrated on 
training divorce counsellors because 
the local Matrimonial Counselling 
Association has just published a 
detailed do-it-yourself divorce kit to 
reduce the cost of legal action for 
poor people. The counsellors will 
help people to use [he kits. Sixteen 
of the graduates are working for the 
association on divorce cases out of 
the local family service bureau, 

"it s absolutely essential that lay 
people be trained to handle routine 
law office matters and assist in 
counselling clients," said Dalhousie 
criminal law professor and legal aid 
service di rector Ian Cowie. 
"Otherwise there is just no way to 
cope adequately with the demand 
being made on legal aid services." 

The training program is an 
innovative one, and a smashing 
success. Cowie added. 

The graduates included a retired 
clergyman, nurses, social workers, 
high school counsellors and 
members of the north end com- 
munity who never made it past high 
school. More than 100 people 
applied, including three lawyers. 

"We could have filled our 
program with university graduates 
but we wanted a good cross-section 
of people with varying academic 
backgrounds and experiences," 
C owie explained. 

Most applicants wanted to join 
because "they could see the need for 
this kind of program. There is also a 
fascination for the law on the part of

Runs roughshod over requests 

Carleton admin to build on student field 

(arlclon University administration 
lias run roughshod over student re- 
quests and yesterday began con- 
structing a new building on a 
residence playing field. 

A threatened confrontation this 
morning was averted this afternoon 
when Carleton president Michael 
Oliver intervened to reverse a Board 
of Governors decision. 

The Board had decided earlier 
yesterday to renege on an agreement 
not lo start work before eight am. 
each morning. 

The Building Advisory Com- 
mittee Monday decided to proceed 
with plans for a new classroom 
and office building for affiliate 
St. Patrick's College on the only 
large playing field in the residence 
area of Carleton's campus. 

Students had delayed construc- 
tion by threatening to occupy the 
field with continuous football games 
and camp fires, but the committee 
said Monday that costs and time 
factors prohibited the choice of 
anv alternative site. 

Residence students agreed before 
the meeting that further opposition 
would be futile, but came deman- 
ding ! 7 concessions to minimize 
harmful effects of construction. 

The committee approved all 
demands except one in principle, 
and referred them to a sub- 
committee for further discussion. 

But. notice that one of the 
concessions would be broken came 
yesterday afternoon, residence coun- 
cil president Leonard Greenspoon 
said in an interview. "The secretar)

of the Board of Governors called to 
say that due lo contractual 
obligations, construction would 
have to start at seven am every 
day." he said. Otherwise, the un- 
iversity would have to pay overtime. 

"My position is tht we are 
allowing our living conditions to be 
completely disrupted this year, so 
they should be able to fork out some 
money for overtime to make things 

Students were considering 
obstructing the bulldozers when they 
arrived today to enforce compliance 
with the agreement. 

Bui. Greenspoon phoned Oliver, 
who culled back to say construction 
would be moved ahead to eight am 
as previously agreed. 

"We hope the administration will 
meet the concessions," another 
residence spokesman said. "If it 

doesn't, we'll see what has to be 

Other conditions agreed to by the 
administration include university 
responsibility for residence expense 
for maintenance and rodent damage 
due lo construction, a delay in a 
road extension until next year, and 
replacement of the field on a smaller 
scale by next September I. The un- 
iversity also agreed not to build or 
change the use of residence buildings 
without "direct consultation with 
the residence council." 

Greenspoon condemned adminis- 
trators on the building advisory 
committee for showing little con- 
sideration for the residents' needs. 

"One of them called us 'little 
kiddies playing games'. They have 
no regard for the fact that this is our

Enrolment down, Carleton U hit by deficit 

OTTAWA (CUP) — Carleton 
University faces a possible 1 972-3 
deficit of $3,000,000 because of a 
decline in enrolment. 

C-jrlelorTs new president Michael 
Oliver said lust week that about 600 
fewer full-time students registered 
than were expected at the time the 
university's annual budget was 
prepared. Administrators expected 
;in increase of four per cent, but 
absolute enrolment actually declined 
Kid students from last gear's figure 
of I0;690. 

An enrolment decrease means less 
provincial money for the university 
because government grants are 
based on enrolment figures. 

Oliver said he was concerned that 
tuition fee increases may have 
prevented many interested and 
qualified students from enrolling. 

The decline is uneven, with 
enrolment in arts and graduate 
studies dropping, while registration 
ui journalism, commerce, science, 
architecture, and music increased. 

The deficit means staff cut-backs 
mav be inevitable. 

A university Senate committee on 
redundancy said at Tuesday's 
Senate meeting it would be un- 
reasonable to cut staff for budgetary 
reasons except as a last resort. 

The committee reported that 
academic expenditures should take 

precedence over other university ex- 
penditures, such as administration 
and maintenance. If cuts become 
necessary, the report recommends 
that the Senate be the only body 
with power to cut programs or 

No cuts should be made until a 
special Senate committee reviews 
the entire budget and ensures the 
university's money is being allocated 
wisely, the report says. The docu- 
ment, which was prepared in May, 
has not yet been adopted by the 
Senate, although some faculty 
members are seeking its speedy 
passage, in case cutbacks become 
necessary this year. 

RCAAP expands narcotics squad 

One hundred men will be added to the RCMP 
narcotics squad by next year, bringing the total number 
of officers engaged in drug-law enforcement to more 
than 400 

"We used to have 185 - 190 drug enforcement 
officers across the country, in 1969" said Inspector 
flordon Tomalty." and the number has jumped 
sienificanlly each year." 

Tomalty. the officer in charge of the narcotics 
squad, said only a few men were engaged in undercover 
investigations. He would not specify how many men 
were engaged in these activities, because to do so, he 
said, would jeopardize their positions. 

Because training procedures for municipal and 
provincial police forces have improved considerably in 
recent years, the RCMP has abandoned much of the 
routine drug detection work and is now concentrating 
on the apprehension of traffickers. 

The drug law enforcement section is presently the 
largest uroup within the RCMPs criminal investigation 
branch. Us operations are directed from the force's 
Ottawa headquarters. 

According lo an RCMP spokesman, the use of 
marijuana in Canada is levelling off, but the use of 
"hard drugs" such as heroin is increasing. Coccaine 
trafficking has also increased recently. 

The number of persons charged with marijuana 
nfl'cnees during the first six months of 1972 decreased 
by 5.7 per cent from the same period of 1971. The 
RCMP also reported that many drug users have 
switched from marijuana to hashish. 

The spokesman asserted that liquid hashish is now 
being smuggled into Canada because it can be imported 
in farce quantities and brings greater profits to 

Meanwhile, Sir George Williams 
University in Montreal was affected 
more drastically by enrolment 
decreases. Registrar Kenneth 
Adams said Tuesday that the decline 
from 17.221 last year to 15,560 this 
fall was attributable to phaasing out 
the community college program. 
The projected enrolment was 15,850 
for (he school year, he said, adding 
that this should be surpassed when 
late registrations are completed. 

At the same lime, however, the 
total number of first year un- 
dergraduates in the day division rose 
about 300 from last year's 1200. 

The decreases in both enrolment 
and projected enrolment at un- 
iversities around the country were 
e\peeted to affect community 
colleges, as, students chose lo leave 
the larger institutions in favor of the 

En Ontario, this did not occur 
according to projections. The 
province's community colleges 
enrolled 4000 fewer students than 
administrators had expected. The 20 
college had predicted a growth rate 
of 25 per cent, based on the number 
of early applications last winter, up. 
from their original 14 per cent 

An Ontario government 
telephone survey Tuesday showed 
the earlier prediction was more 
realistic. So far, the growth rale for 
community colleges is 13 per cent, 
and is not expected to increase. This 
is the same growth rate as last year.

Commercial use for 
biodegradable plasfic 

By early 1 973. plastic coffee cups, 
meat trays, and egg cartons in 
superm;'ri' , ls may be made of 
Kcolylc-S. a biodegradable, plastic 
invented by a U of T chemistry 
professor .lames Guillet. 

Since it breaks down into a 
powder which can be further 
changed into carbon dioxide and 
water by bacterial action, the new 
plastic can help solve problems of 
litter. Plastics in present use do not 
break down. 

The federal Food and Drug 
Directorate recently announced that 
1 ctilylc-S may be used in com- 
mercial packaging, the only man- 
made biodegradable plastic to be 
allowed for use in packaging food. 

All rights to the new plastic have 
lieen assigned by Guillet to U of T, 
which has reassigned them to 
I eoplaslics of Toronto in return for 
royalties. This company has joined 
with a Dutch firm to form Van Leer- 
lico plastics Limited. 

According to results from tests 
made in the Van Leer main 

laboratories in Passfield. England, 
Lcolytc-S has mechanical properties 
comparable precisely to similar un- 
modified plastics. Its time of dis- 
integration can be controlled to vary 
between hours and months. 

According to Paul Wright, 
president of Van Leer- Eco plastics 
l imited, the new plastic will be 
available commercially in Canada 
early in 1973. It is expected that the 
l-.colvle plastics will be about 10-15 
per cent more expensive than con- 
ventional plastics.

The Varsity 15 

Participation emphasized in track and field 


Participation has become the 
dominant feature of a new Varsity 
co-educational track and field' 
program, according to coach Andy 

Over 50 students, alumni and 
just general track buffs are par- 
ticipating in the daily afternoon 
workouts at Varsity Stadium super- 
vised by Higgins and other Toronto 
area coaches. 

Higgins formed the University of 
Toronto Track Club during the 
summer as a method of expanding 
the existing track program which he 
fell was lied too closely to the 
annual OUAA championship meet 
in October. 

"We had an excellent program 
while il lasted, but once the league 
meet was held most of our better 
athletes were forced to continue 
their training programs at other city 
clubs," Higgins said yesterday 

The new program allows Varsity 
athletes to continue training 
together on campus for almost the 
entire year. 

"Fortunately, the facilities at the 
stadium are not in use most of the 

lime, so we are not depriving any 
other sport of its practice time," 
Higgins said. 

A weight-training apparatus has 
been installed in one of the unused 
football dressing rooms and, as 
Higgins points out, the minimal 
annual membership fees cover all 
the operating expenses and help 
defray the costs of travel to provin- 
cial meets. 

"Varsity Stadium has become, in 
effect, a multi-use facility with track 
and field practicing in late afternoon 

before the football team takes 
over," Higgins said. 

Formation of the UTTC should 
be a boost for women's track since 
Ihe campus already contains several 
highly regarded female performers 
and track will soon be an official 
sport in the women's intercollegiate 

Orillia's Doug Reid won the first 
annual Club Decathalon last

Golf team 4th at Trent 

The University of Toronto golf 
learn finished second to Waterloo's 
threesome last weekend at the 
O'Keefe Invitational College and 
University Golf Tournament, and 
fourth al the Trent Invitational 

The Toronto threesome finished 
with a 471 total for 36 holes with 
John Bays leading the team at 154. 
The other two Toronto players, 
Doug Findlay and Tony Sergautis, 
finished with scores of 158 and 159, 

The U of T team also placed 
second in the best-ball event with a 
137 lotal. three over Waterloo's 134 
winning total. 

The team did not fare as well on 
Monday al Trent placing fourth out 
of seven participating universities. U 
ol T had a combined score of 314 for 
Ihe IX hole match with front-runner 
Waterloo scoring 301, Queens and 
Lakehead tying for second at 305, 
and Carlelon coming third at 
306.(<Fotir of the best scores- on the

the next tournament. 

In Georgetown last Friday and 
Saturday U of T. fell 16 strokes 
behind the first place University of 
Waterloo team. The Waterloo 
squad's success was largely due to 
Tim MeCutcheon's Saturday 
charge. Warriors finished with a 
threeman gross of 225 on Friday to 
lake seven stroke lead over second 
place finishers, Lakehead 

MeCutcheon led and Brian 
Harrocks tied from Algonquin 
College tied in the first round at 75 
each. However, MeCutcheon was 
lliree under par on the outgoing nine 
Saturday to pull away from all the 
other individual challengers.wilh the 
exception of Harrocks. 

Harrocks played 74 on the next 
nine for a 36-hole score of 149, three 
shots behind MeCutcheon. 
Waterloo's Ed Heakes placed third, 
and U ot T's Bays fouth. 

The O'Keefe tournament, 
conceived by Sheridan College's 
athletic director John Cruickshank, 
wil seeks lo become an annual event. 
Cruick. shank's senior aide, Dick 
Rusehiensky, commented last 
weekend that the everil would 
probably lake place the weekend 
after Thanksgiving next year at the 
end or the regular season and the 
college leagues. 

The tournament sponsors hope to 
bring in the top two teams from each 
college section. The sponsors had 
also hoped to make the event a 
national competition, but the cost 
proved to be too prohibitive. 

As for the future, this Friday the 
U of T golf learn will travel to 
Kingston for the east section finals. 
Toronto's learn will be represented 
by Doug Findlay. John Bays. Tony 
Sergautis. Richard Hughes, and 
Paul Skinner. The top four teams at 
Kingston move on to the finals at 
Carlelon on October 5 and 6.

The Other Teams -Western Section 

Western Mustangs once 
again lead the Western Section 
of the OUAA as the midway 
mark of the intercollegiate 
regular season approaches. 

The Mustangs have 
defeated last year's semi-final 
contenders — the McMaster 
Maerauders — twice — once in 
exhibition play and again early 
in the regular season. In 
Hamilton the exhibition score 
was 14-10, while the Mustangs 
won at home 21-3. Western's 
only other game so far resulted 
in a lopsided 31-8 victory over 

Unless there are some 
major injuries on the UWO 
squad, it will be hard to displace 
lust year's Yates Trophy 
winners. (Western went on to 
beat University of Alberta 
Golden Bears 15-14 to capture 
the Canadian College Bowl). 

The Mustangs appear to be 
the Queens equivalent in the 
Western Section. The team has 
only lost three first-team players 
from last year and that speaks 
for itself as an indication of 
strength. (Furthermore, over 
two-thirds of last year's players 
have returned.) 

As was foreseen at the 
beginning of the season, an im- 
portant part of Westerns offence 
will depend on the kicking of 
Paul Knill, who picked up seven 
points in the season's opener 
against Guelph — one field goal, 
plus four converts- Knill led the 
Western Section last year with 
51 points (on 11 field goals, 14 
converts, and four singles). 
Western's kicker averaged 40.1 
yards per punt, while standing 
third in the west and fifth overall 
in the OUAA in punting. 

Last season Western had a 
2-1 rushing versus passing 
margin, and their game is likely 
to be along the ground again this 
year for the most part. In the 
first game of the season, total 
offence along the ground was
